This will then remove all of the ‘noise’ around the Word document, leaving you with just the key text. You can then proofread the document with a variety of tools at your disposal to assist. The immersive reader can read the text aloud and translate as well as offering numerous view options to support a variety of education needs. Any changes made here will not affect the original document.

This is not only great for teachers but also a great addition to the student’s digital toolbox.
