Is there a website/program out there that I could upload an assignment to and it would translate it to a lower reading level?

It is possible to do this in MS Word. Copy and paste your text onto a blank Word document. Then, Click on the menu Tools --> Autosummarize. You might need to completely open the Tools menu to see the Autosummarize option. It is not one of the "usual" tools.

Once the Autosummarize window is open, you can choose a number of different options for "downsizing" the text. I generally use the "Create a new document and put the summary there" option. The larger percent of text you use the more text you will have in the new document.

Hope this helps!!

Sally Wow awesome..lightbulb moment...I knew of that application but never put it together as an easy way to lower the readability or length of an assignment.
