If you’re coming to ClaroRead from Texthelp’s Read & Write you have to find where we put things. This is a short guide to the roughly equivalent functions: we’re not saying they are the same (or even better or worse – that’s up to you!) but it should help you identify where to start.

If you want more detail on ClaroRead, do check out the help manual and of course our free, accredited and extensive training course.
