Improving Digital Inclusion with Google Workspace and TextHelp

Google Workspace is customized for EdTech and can be further tailored for Digital Inclusion needs using Text Help.

Google’s email and collaboration tools ‘Workspace‘ is one of the Cloud options that Scotland’s public sector can adopt for their office working.

It’s also customized for the Education sector, with a Certified Innovators program for those specializing in its adoption within schools.¬†There is a local Scottish support group – GEG Scotland.


It can also be further tailored to address the needs of digital inclusion, with Aberdeen offering a great case study of this. They integrated the suite with Texthelp, a service for making documents more accessible, through friendly literacy features that help English Language Learners, as well as people with learning difficulties or requiring dyslexia tools.

From hearing emails or documents read out loud to text prediction, picture dictionaries, summary highlighters and a grammar, spelling and confusable words checker, Read&Write makes lots of everyday literacy tasks simpler, quicker and more accurate.
