Our reader also contains accessibility features with adjustable font sizes and typefaces, including a special “open dyslexia” font.
- Your activity feed: centralize all the conversations, comments, and reactions of these can then be filtered by student, teacher and type of annotations in order to facilitate a possible export.
- Dictionary: a place to see all the words students of your class have researched while reading, and their definition. A great place to generate vocabulary lists and work on lexicon.
