Read&Write is a comprehensive literacy software designed to assist students, staff, and instructors to make everyday academic tasks more manageable and efficient. This tool is equipped with a multitude of features aimed at improving reading, writing, and studying experiences.

Read&Write offers text-to-speech functionality, making it easier to comprehend text files and online articles. It also includes note-taking functions, dictionaries, highlighters, and checks for spelling, grammar, and more. These features not only aid in understanding complex texts but also provide substantial support when writing papers, proofreading written work, and researching assignments. 

Get Started with Read&Write

Read&Write can be used as an application on your Windows or MacOS computers or as a Google Chrome extension. This flexibility allows you to access its features wherever you are, on whichever device you prefer.

The University of Iowa has a specific license with Read&Write. It’s crucial that you follow our installation steps and guides, not those provided by Read&Write directly. This ensures you have access to all the features included in our license.

For detailed instructions on downloading and installing each version of Read&Write, please visit our Installation Page.
