New features in Learning Tools, currently available in OneNote along with Word desktop, are now rolling out to Word Online with modify views and include techniques that help people read more effectively, such as:
- Read Aloud reads text out loud with simultaneous highlighting which improves decoding, fluency, and comprehension while sustaining focus and attention.
- Spacing optimizes font spacing in a narrow column view to improve reading fluency for users who suffer from “visual crowding” issues.
- Syllables shows the breaks between syllables to improve word recognition and decoding.
How does this affect me?
