This toolbar “floats” on your screen, or docks to a locked position, offering help as you work, highlights and reads text aloud using natural-sounding voices, and also includes a comprehensive set of support tools for reading, writing, studying, research and test-taking.

New Web Apps allow you to access your favorite features in the Cloud, anywhere, anytime, on any device.
