Turning on Narrator Mode On Your Computer

Getting help with struggling readers seems to be a common conversation topic on my local and national Dyslexia mom groups on facebook. I definitely want to share any resources I find.

This might be different computers, but my kids are using Dell Computers and I just found out that they have a Narrator Mode that will read pages to them! This is a free service with your computer to help readers and non-readers hear the words on the page!

I’m Patty Gordon, a 40+ year old school lunch lady married to a crane mechanic. Our days are anything but normal as he works “construction worker hours” and I take care of our two elementary school aged kids, Chihuahua Mr Biggs, Pitbull Cali, and French Bulldog MooMoo. I blogged a few years ago under different names but have landed with the 365MomMe.com name this time around. The term 365MomMe comes from the idea that I’m a mom and I’m me 365 days a year. Kids call me Mommy but I see myself as MomMe.
