  • Listen to the text read aloud
  • Use the built in regular dictionary and picture dictionary
  • Voice type into the Google Doc
  • Use word prediction
  • Use highlighters to highlight text with different colors and collect highlighted text for studying
  • Translate text to different languages
  • Create MP3s of text being read aloud
