HCC’s Teaching and Learning Center Gets ReadPlease Plus® Software
Haywood Community College’s Teaching and Learning Center, with help from a mini-grant from the HCC Foundation, recently acquired ReadPlease Plus® software. This software reads text directly from the computer screen to the students. It is available on four computer stations in the center.
The ReadPlease Plus® software addresses the needs of auditory learners by allowing them to hear their writing as well as see it, a vital part of the writing/editing process. It aids developmental learners in the acquisition of vital reading strategies, including phonetic recognition/pronunciation. Additionally, the software assists visually impaired students by reading Web and other computer-based content to them, thereby, leveling the educational learning field.
