What is Cloze Pro?

Cloze Pro is a program that allows you to easily create accessible, digital cloze activities for all students.  Start by creating a piece of writing or importing text from a document, scanner, or the Internet.  Highlight a word and remove it!  Print off copies for a paper and pencil activity for some students, use the scanning feature to make your activities available to students with physical disabilities, and use the 'Speak' feature to allow students with visual impairments or learning disabilities to access the activity.
