Tools for Proofreading

Proofreading for students is a most important task and often a difficult one to do. Here are some tools that are helpful.

Prizmo Go is an app that allows a student to take a picture of what needs to be read and the app will read it aloud. This helps the student hear and recognize written mistakes. The app can be stopped and corrections made immediately.

NVDA is an app that is put on the computer which will read aloud anything on the computer screen. A student with an essay document can have the NVDA read the writing. The student will then be able to hear and recognize written mistakes. It can be stopped and corrections made immediately. It can also be used for reading information from websites on the computer.
