What’s new in this version
The Pearson Realize Reader 19.2 app for Chrome includes performance improvements and feature enhancements.
Font Size Setting Consistency
When teachers and students adjust the font size setting in Realize Reader, the selected font size is now more accurately and consistently reflected in every book, and persists from session to session.
Realize Reader 2 Page View
The Realize Reader 2 Page View feature in the reading pane is designed to enable easier reading and to provide zoom options to give students and teachers a closer look. While using the 2 Page View, some interactive features, such as play buttons, will not function. To use the interactive features, click Close to return to the reading pane’s standard view.
Images in some books not opening in full-page view
When selecting an image in some Realize Reader books, the image now opens in a full-page view as expected.
Downloaded content not displaying when working offline
When logging out and back into Realize Reader in offline mode, previously downloaded content now displays properly.
Realize Reader navigation buttons appear disabled after deleting a note
After a student adds and then deletes a note in the Realize Reader Notebook, the Back and Next buttons no longer appear to be disabled.
Some Realize Reader books not opening when working offline
After downloading books and going offline, the downloaded books now open properly.
Notes added in Realize Reader offline mode not displaying in All Notes
When a student adds a note on a page of a Realize Reader book while working offline, and then navigates to the All Notes page, the note now displays as expected.
Migration of legacy eText to Realize Reader
In Realize Reader, the migrated texts display their printed page numbers and each page has an entry in the Table of Contents. Now, users can navigate to the authored print pages by clicking on the corresponding page number in the Table of Contents. Consequently, the go-to-page navigation feature has been disabled.
Migration of legacy eTexts to Realize Reader
Students and teachers may experience the following issues due to the ongoing migration from legacy eTexts to Realize Reader:
• Some teacher edition books are incorrectly displayed on student bookshelves.
• The display of some teacher editions of enVision Math Minis are blurry and illegible.
• Many of the assets of the migrated eTexts, such as videos, PDFs, audio recordings, and so on, do not function when offline.
• Some teachers and students using ReadyGEN® could see eT1 and Realize Reader reading experiences. Accessing the eTexts through Realize instead of an app is recommended.
Realize Reader App for Chrome OS Not Supported on Non-Chrome Devices
Google™ has discontinued their support for Chrome Packaged Apps used on non-Chrome OS devices. This change means the Realize Reader app for Chrome OS is no longer compatible with non-Chrome OS devices.
