For SIMbook and Lesson assignments, the text reader will read all SIMbook text or individually selected text as desired. For Project assignments, the text reader will read all instructions. For Exam assignments, the text reader will read all question text.
SIMbooks and Lessons also have the added Translation feature. Selected text can be translated into 22 different languages using Google Translate.
