TXDLAReadSpeaker is exhibiting at TXDLA for the first time this year! From March 28-31, we’ll be in San Antonio, Texas, to demonstrate how text-to-speech technology enhances distance learning at the annual Texas Distance Learning Association Conference. The theme of this year’s conference is superheroism. According to the conference website,

In the field of distance education, we interact with heroes every day. We aspire to do noble acts of heroism in distance education to meet the needs of the modern lifelong learner. Increasing demand to support the need falls to experienced professionals performing feats of bravery, problem-solving and even superheroism.

By integrating text-to-speech technology into your distance education environment, you’re the hero for the modern learner who prefers to learn on the go, the hero for the learner who likes to multi-task. You’re also the hero for those of us who learn best by listening, or who have some sort of disability (reading disability, concentration disability, visual disability). Finally, you’re the hero for ELL students: listening to long course texts is often easier for English language learners than reading these texts.
