Learning Tools in OneNote for Windows 10

Learning Tools are designed to help you improve your reading skills by boosting your ability to pronounce words correctly, to read quickly and accurately, and to understand what you read.

We know from research that reading requires the following abilities:

  • Decoding: The ability to pronounce words the right way.

  • Fluency: The ability to read quickly and accurately.

  • Comprehension: The ability to understand what you read.

Learning Tools in OneNote can help you develop and enhance your reading abilities.
