Microsoft has recently launched the official Learning Tools for OneNote (Customer Preview) add-in. It can be downloaded from http://www.onenote.com/learningtools.
The Learning Tools for OneNote add-in helps everyone improve their reading and writing skills, including gifted learners, students with learning differences or a combination of any of the broad range of unique student abilities.
“Students spend so much energy decoding that they can’t focus on content. This tool will help making learning more efficient.”
(Joel Reese, teacher Sammamish High School)
Some of the top Dyslexia leaders in the US, Drs. Brock and Fernette Edie have recently posted a blog naming Learning Tools the first “top Dyslexia app of 2016”. They run the largest Dyslexia community in the US and wrote the book The Dyslexic Advantage. The potential to help people with Dyslexia is enormous.
