242-07-07-17 Word Bank for Google Chrome
Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Don Johnston recently released the Word Bank Universal extension for Google Chrome. The extension puts the creation and use of a word bank right at your fingertips. Word banks are helpful tools that provide core vocabulary that can be used for:
– Vocabulary development
– Spelling support
– Recalling previously learned words
– General writing support
To use the word bank while writing, simply choose from over 5 million topics and content areas. Then you can hover your mouse over the words to listen to them out loud. You can then select the word you’d like to use and it’ll instantly add it to your writing.
