Letters are underlined in Read 180 software.

Letters are underlined in Read 180 software as the student types. This causes everything to be wrong. This is happening to one student on one chromebook, after working fine three quarters of the year. He can use a different chromebook and it is fine. I have reset his settings on that profile to no avail. Other students can use the chromebrook without problem. I have checked to make sure the correct keyboard is selected for use.

    Check to see if the US keyboard is selected for the Chromebook. Otherwise, give Tech Support a call at 1-800-283-5974. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community


    By the way, when you call they will need to know what version of READ 180 you are using--Next Generation or Universal. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community

    Heard that sometimes there are such problems with the keyboard.


    Yes, there are sometimes probems with the Chromebook keyboards, but they are usually fixed when the US keyboard is selected. Dee, Ask Dee at the READ 180 Community
