Microsoft’s Learning Tools Heading to Word on iPad

One of the most useful Office plug-ins Microsoft has developed is its set of Learning Tools, which help students with reading and writing. Soon, for the first time, Learning Tools will be heading to Word on iPad.

According to Engadget:

To begin with, the iPad Word app will get some basic capabilities from the Immersive Reading tool. It’ll recite text out loud while highlighting individual words, and you can also change the word, character and line spacing to make it easier to comprehend. They’re the sort of features that could help anyone focus. But, in particular, they could be essential for students with ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia or those just learning how to read. The feature will also work for every language supported by Word for iPad.
