ReadSpeaker’s audio enhanced learning tools are easily integrated into any LMS and the cloud-based solutions ensure that when any course content is updated it is immediately speech enabled.

The ReadSpeaker listen icon will appear in the course window. The learner can then choose whether to activate the ReadSpeaker tools or not. When activated, the ReadSpeaker Listen button can be moved to wherever the learner prefers.

With the easily-integrated, readily-available Listen button, usage is better than the standard audio solution.

The link may reside on a Course Navigation bar, within a group link of Resources, etc.
