Glean Notetaking Software 

With Glean, you never have to worry about missing important information from class again! Record lectures in full, listen back at your own pace and annotate with different note types to create a complete learning resource - tailored to you. Check out our Glean Resources page for helpful tips on getting started. SDS registered students can contact their Disability Specialist to request access to Glean. 

TextHelp Software Suite 

Texthelp is a collection of several digital literacy support tools that help with everyday tasks like reading text out loud, converting PDFs and images to a readable format, creating voice notes in mp3 files, making math content accessible and more. You can install the tools as individual Google Chrome Extensions using the resources on this page.
