Immersive Reader Tool in Canvas to Support Students

Canvas offers a helpful tool, called the Immersive Reader, that provides text support like:

• Translations
• Text to Speech
• Color contrast
• Larger font sizes
• Picture dictionary
• Line focus

This tool can improve reading comprehension and increase fluency for English language learners. It can help build confidence for emerging readers learning to read at higher levels, and offers text decoding solutions for students with learning differences such as dyslexia.
