Transform PDFs with Read&Write's PDF Reader
Portable Document Format (PDF) files continue to be one of the most popular file formats found both on and off the web. They’re great when you need to retain formatting, restrict others from editing, or save a digital copy of a file. PDFs are also easily viewable on devices ranging from phones to Chromebooks.

However, when it comes to accessibility, engagement, and collaboration within PDFs, the file format falls short. That’s why we've created the Texthelp PDF Reader as part of Read&Write, which provides a speedy experience while integrating all the bells and whistles anyone looking to interact with PDFs would want.

Depending on the application used to view PDF files, many PDF viewers fall short in areas such as:

-Accessibility
-Responding to questions
-Creating text, voice, or other annotations
-Making or replying to comments
-Real-time collaboration

The Texthelp PDF Reader aims to help remedy many of these common shortfalls. Built from the ground up, our Reader provides a lightning fast experience for anyone looking to interact with PDFs.

In this session, you'll see how you can use the Read&Write tools you know and love in a PDF to:
- Read text aloud
- Look up words in the Dictionary and Picture Dictionary
- Translate words
- Highlight text
- Build vocabulary lists
- Comment and annotate in the PDF
- See the PDF Reader’s newest features: drawing and shape annotation tools!

Math is (finally!) Accessible and Digital with EquatIO
As an educator, you work with a wide variety of students with different strengths, weaknesses, interests, and learning preferences. These variabilities can present barriers to teaching and learning if you don’t have the proper supports to meet the unique needs of your students.

Luckily, we now have EquatIO. With EquatIO, students of all ages and learning abilities can engage with math and STEM content in the ways they prefer.

Over 1 million students and educators are successfully using EquatIO's simple tools such as math dictation, math prediction, speech-to-math, OCR, and handwriting recognition to create and engage with math in popular platforms such as Google's G Suite, Microsoft Word, and Learning Management Systems such as Canvas.  This session will overview the program, successful implementation strategies, and provide all teachers with free access to its premium features, allowing them to create accessible, digital math for their students today!  Attendees will also learn how students can use EquatIO to easily engage with, collaborate, and succeed in math and STEM classes in today's exciting digital educational spaces.
