Here’s the document we selected! As you’ll see, a lot of the important information you’ll need is at the top. It tells you the publication date, the publisher, the news service that originally ran the article, the document type, and the word count. You can also see similar articles on the right side, which could lead to other sources for your research.
Just before the article begins, you’ll see several options. On the left, you’ll see Translate (which allows you to see the article in a different language) and Font Size (if you’d like to increase or decrease the physical size of the words in the article). You’ll also see a Listen option, which is incredibly helpful. By clicking it, the article will read itself to you. While some of the audio isn’t perfect (some words aren’t pronounced perfectly, or the text-to-voice program’s phrasing is a little stilted), it’s very close, and will allow you to multitask (like maybe looking for other sources in another window, for instance). To the right of these options, you’ll notice four other icons. These are options to save the text from this article in Google Drive, Microsoft Cloud, email, or downloadable PDF. This would be very helpful if you were doing your research at school, a friend’s house, or even your favorite CCPL branch (once our doors open again, that is)!
