We now have a text-to-speech solution with Canvas called ReadSpeaker.

ReadSpeaker is:

· A good way to connect with people who have learning disabilities that make reading difficult.

· A great option for people who multitask or who access content via mobile devices.

· A good bridge of your content for the foreign born who may have problems reading your content.

· A useful option to extend your website content to those who have basic literacy levels.

· An enhancement for the visually impaired.


What some of our teachers have said about ReadSpeaker:

· This would greatly help Special Ed, struggling readers, and ESL students in my classroom

· I wouldn’t have to read the assessments to the students anymore if they brought headphones

· This is a no-brainer, Get it!
