At the University of Manchester, we are always looking for new ways to enhance the student’s experience and learning. ReadSpeaker could offer us a unique functionality within our VLE so the integration was simple and seamless. Our users are very satisfied with the quality of the text to speech feature and the very short time required to generate the audio. Another positive factor is that with just one click, all our users can listen to our text without the need for any download benefiting different types of students according to their preferences and learning styles/needs.
