Reader Extension

As you may know Readability, a Chrome extension, is no longer going to be available. While there are other choices, your students may want to give Just Read a try. Once the extension is installed, they just need to click on the icon to clean up the page they are reading. If they look for the paintbrush in the top right corner, they can also adjust font size, text color, background color, link color, and link hover color. If a student wants to select specific text to read, they  simply right-click the extension icon and choose “Select text to read”. It’s easy to close out when finished by clicking the “X” in the top corner.  (An example of before and after is shown to the left.)
