What is Texthelp?

Exam time can be a stressful period for any student, but especially for students who struggle with reading and writing. Read&Write can be used as a computer reader in exams, in line with JCQ regulations. This allows students with appropriate access arrangements to sit their exams independently.


Texthelp - text to speech compliant with JCQ for exam access arrangements

The easy-to-use Exam Mode is fully customisable to each student’s needs, and helps them:

  • To sit exams with confidence without the need for a human reader
  • Use the approved features they need to reach their full potential, like Text-to-Speech and Screen Masking
  • To be able to access exam content at the same time as their peers

Read&Write in exams is also ideal for boosting students’ confidence and significantly reduces the costs associated with using a Human Reader. Its easy-to-use exam mode means it’s ready instantly and with inbuilt scanning, every exam paper is accessible in seconds. Plus, don’t forget that Read&Write can be used all year round with its full set of features for SEND students, so when exams come around, it’s their normal way of working.
