Do students do better using text to speech?
Yes they do. See how.
“If it’s not easy and intuitive, students won’t find it and use it. I think that is why you have seen such a large number of students starting to use it as they are finding it on their own. I mean it says ‘Listen’, how much easier can you get. The general record, play, pause icons make it intuitive to other technology that people may have used.”

“ReadSpeaker allowed Lumina Foundation to enable our entire website text with speech in a matter of minutes. Implementation of the software was simple thanks to ReadSpeaker’s clearly written documentation and support staff. The natural vocal delivery was a pleasant surprise. Readspeaker’s linguists even worked with my staff to perfect some difficult-to-pronounce proper names on our site. I couldn’t be happier with the product or the service we received.”

Simply put, accessible software are computer programs that are used to assist those with disabilities, whether physical or in learning, in accessing content and as a support in their daily lives.
Types of assistive technologies include screen readers, speech recognition software, magnifiers and page masks, visual settings and color schemes, narration and speech-enabled tools.
We need accessibility in education in order to allow each individual to develop to his or her full potential.
Most disabilities are not related to mental acuity and if these barriers (such as decoding challenges, visual impairment, limited focus, etc) are removed the individual will flourish.
This is especially important to allow students to remain at peer level in all subjects in their studies.
If students do not remain engaged in the content they are studying they will not retain it, and therefore cannot build on it to create solid foundations of knowledge.
Learning disabilities, such as ADHD, hinder often extremely bright individuals who eventually are left behind as they struggle to remain engaged in their school work.
Providing accessibility software for individuals with learning challenges and those learning in a second language has many benefits, including improved reading comprehension, vocabulary, fluency and assessment results.
With students accustomed to different ways of learning, text to speech is now being used by all types of learners, whether those learning in a second language, those needing to consume a large quantity of content, adults needing to multitask, or the many other individual scenarios students experience.
Text to speech and bimodal presentation are facets of UDL, providing a number of flexible ways to meet the needs of a diverse population of individual learners, giving all students an equal opportunity to learn and succeed.
