Reading Guide in a Digital Environment

Microsoft Word has the ability to generate "line focus" which is a tool to perform the same results as a reading guide in a digital format.  This tool is in the Immersive Reader selection in the "view" tab of Word.


Page Focus is another tool available under the "view" tab in Microsoft Word.  This tool eliminates all extraneous visuals and allows the student to focus solely on the page itself.
