The learning tools of Microsoft Word, a feature available only to Office 365 subscribers, are designed to improve reading comprehension and speech intelligibility. The following is an overview of the features of Word's learning tools.
Functions of the learning tools of Word.
Word's learning tools have several learning features that help you improve focus, reading speed, pronunciation, and speech intelligibility. However, they do not support all languages. Text spacing does not work in languages with complex or linked scripts, and the read-only feature does not support register-transfer languages. In addition, the syllable function does not support some languages. Visit the Office support site for information about language support for the tutorial.
The following is an overview of the offers available in this toolset. First you have to access it. To do this, open Word, go to the View tab, and then select Learning Tools.
You are now in the new "Learning Tools" tab with six different options in front of you.
Each offer provides a unique advantage in the language learning process. Here's what you need to know:
The Column Width option sets how much text appears on a single line. With fewer words per line, new learners may be less afraid of reading the text. If you continue, you may want to adjust the column width slowly to bring more text into each row.
The column width option has four levels. To access these options, choose Column Width, then choose the desired width from the drop-down menu.
Adjusting the background color is useful for improving a reader's ability to skim and scan text. The aim here is to relieve the eye when using these reading methods by improving the contrast between text and background.
Selecting the Page Color option opens a menu with a library of different colors.
Hovering over the different colors will give you a live preview.
The line focus is a function that, as the name implies, places the focus on a line (or lines) by highlighting the text. There are three options: one, three or five lines. If you select "None" in the menu, the highlight will be removed.
When you have selected the desired option, you can navigate by clicking through the entire document. The up and down arrows on the right side of the window.
Spacing inserts more space between each character, word, and line in your content. With this function you can make reading more fluid.
So your text would appear before the text distance:
And so he would look for the text spacing:
Enabling the Syllables function will wrap each syllable of a word. This is to help the readers to pronounce words and to recognize quickly.
The function read-out emphasizes each word while the system reads the content. The audio starts at the position of your cursor. You can also mark specific words or phrases to read only that content.
If you select the "Read aloud" option, an options bar appears at the top right of the page. Here you can (1) play / pause the audio and switch between paragraphs or (2) select another voice.
