    hi hi mrs. Parker and I'm going to show
    00:04
    you today how to install a tool that can
    00:08
    help you read what is on a web page or a
    00:11
    Google Doc in front of you
    00:13
    I am looking right now at a book called
    00:16
    The Wizard of Oz and a while that'll
    00:19
    help to read it I know most the words
    00:21
    but it can help me to hear them out loud
    00:24
    so I'm going to switch to the Mukilteo
    00:28
    School District web page on this page
    00:32
    there is a button on the lower right
    00:34
    corner called the student portal when I
    00:39
    go there I see all of the student sites
    00:42
    and student links on the left there is a
    00:46
    link for tech tools to help students the
    00:51
    first tool on the list is this one
    00:55
    called Claro read it will help me read
    00:58
    things out loud I'm going to click on
    01:02
    the blue link over here to install the
    01:04
    Chrome extension for Claro read when I
    01:10
    click it it takes me to the Chrome Web
    01:14
    Store it tells me about clear arene and
    01:17
    it gives me a blue button I need to
    01:21
    click the button to add it to Chrome it
    01:24
    will ask me to make sure I want to
    01:27
    install this so I will click add
    01:29
    extension wait a little bit and it will
    01:34
    notify you in the upper right when
    01:36
    that's been installed there it goes
    01:41
    after it installs I will see the Claro
    01:44
    read toolbar it has a green play button
    01:47
    a red stop button and a settings cog
    01:52
    that will let me make some changes I'm
    01:55
    going to go back to my book refresh my
    02:00
    screen because that brings my Claro read
    02:04
    toolbar up and let's try it out if I
    02:09
    want to read here
    02:11
    [Music]
    02:12
    I can click and then push the green play
    02:18
    button when Dorothy stood in the doorway
    02:21
    and looked around she could see nothing
    02:23
    but the great gray prairie on every side
    02:26
    not a tree nor a house broke the broad
    02:29
    sweep of flat country that reached the
    02:30
    edge of the sky in all directions the
    02:34
    Sun had baked the ploughed land into a
    02:35
    gray mass with little cracks running
    02:38
    through it and I pushed the Red Square
    02:41
    to stop in the settings I can make some
    02:46
    changes to the voice I can change the
    02:49
    color it uses to mark where it's reading
    02:52
    and a couple of other things that you
    02:55
    might want to try the other options that
    02:58
    are here come with a premium account
    03:00
    that means you have to pay for them so
    03:03
    I'm just going to stick with the speech
    03:05
    which allows my computer to read to me
    03:09
    when I need a little extra help I hope
    03:16
    that helps you too
