To continue to make Firefly content as accessible as possible, Microsoft's Immersive Reader is now available for Parents within Firefly's standard resource pages. Text on the page can be viewed in a variety of formats within Immersive Reader, whilst the translation feature will also allow those parents for whom English is not their first language to have the text presented to them in the language of their choice.

If you're using Firefly on an iPad, you can now drag and drop any file out of Firefly to save it to your device. If your child submitted work, you can save that file. You can also save feedback or images of success criteria that teachers send back to your child.
