OSU Provides Students with Software to Support Academic Needs

Explore the software and technology that Oklahoma State University offers students to aid with academic support and success. Software such as “Read & Write Gold” provides reading and writing support through text-to-speech which provides an audio version of a digital book, website, or documents.
