JCQ Statement:
“The arrangement ‘Read Aloud’ would also include the use of an examination reading pen. A permitted examination reading pen will not have an in-built dictionary or thesaurus, or a data storage facility. An approved application for a computer reader would also allow the use of an examination reading pen.”
