Snap&Read Universal offers the best in text-to-speech and dynamic text leveling, with second language support and study tools built right in - for any text, from inaccessible PDFs to images.
With Co:Writer Universal's responsive word prediction and on-point, instant topic dictionaries, students can write about what they want, wherever they want.
When the 2 tools are partnered together, students have everything they need to take their literacy skills to the next level. Whether on a Chromebook, laptop, or Macbook, students have quick and easy access to the support functions they need to work efficiently, all in one seamless experience.
For both Snap&Read (S&R) and Co:Writer (CW) Universal, you can chose from a variety of easy, time saving options to deploy and manage your licenses, including domain based automatic registration.
You can chose to give access automatically to anyone with your school district’s, post-secondary institution’s or organisation’s domain (eg. www.schooldistrict.ca with emails like @schooldistrict.ca).
In your eco-system are you using different sub-domains for different roles? For instance, @schooldistrict.com for students but @staff.schooldistrict.ca for staff. You can designate roles and access rules based on your sub-domains just like you do already.
In addition, for Chromebook or Google Apps for Education (GAFE) boards, you can sign in with existing Google credentials.
You can also add users by generating an individual code via email, or upload a CSV file of your students and staff.
Contact Bridges and we’ll map out an implementation plan free of charge for your universal license that works best for your eco-system.

It isn’t enough to say your servers are secure in a world where server security breaches have become almost routine. Teachers, students have critical personal information on their computer and most extensions and cloud based apps indiscriminately capture all the information your looking at in your browser – website addresses, content, forms you’ve filled out, emails you write, docs you create – often even when the extension is off.
Don Johnston uses the highest possible protocols to protect their data on the cloud.
But they go farther.
Unlike any other accessibility extension, most of S&R and CW functionality happens right on the local computer, not in the Cloud. As a result there is no personal data on Co:Writer or Snap&Read Universal servers.
They don’t know what a user has read, which websites they’ve visited or what specifically they have written.
What DJI has on their servers for CW and S&R is meta-data. The analysis but not the content ie:
They know what grade level you’re reading at, but not what you’ve read.
They know what academic level words you’ve used in your writing but not what the writing is about.
Essentially, if someone ever manages to break into DJ’s servers, you can be certain that the thieves wouldn’t find anything there worth stealing.
Co:Writer and Snap&Read are the only Chrome accessibility extensions that give you offline access—crucial if you have inconsistent internet access or if there’s poor internet access at home. Close the lid on your Chromebook or laptop at school and when you open it at home, you can continue to read and write with the supports you need.
