“Ensuring that our courses are both multimedia rich and suitable for all learners is something that is central to our mission,” said Storie Walsh, Director of Instructional Technology for VHS. “ReadSpeaker was a natural fit because it gives all of our students an audio option. ReadSpeaker’s integration with the D2L Learning Environment made it easy for VHS to implement the browser-based solution. Within seconds, the organization enabled it on a course level and within all lesson documents so VHS students can have all course web pages and documents read to them with one click of a button. Since implementing the technology, we’ve been encouraged by how popular it’s been.”Storie Walsh, Director of Instructional Technology

We wanted to implement a listen function for our online text and documents to make our website accessible even to visitors who find it difficult to read. Accessibility is important for our site. We looked around and tested different websites with different speech solutions. The best we found was ReadSpeaker. When we saw that Swedish Parliament was using ReadSpeaker, we were convinced that we should go for it. We are very satisfied with the ReadSpeaker listen function. It was easy to implement. It works very well and it sounds good, even in Swedish, which is very unusual. ReadSpeaker is definitely the best solution we have found. Also we are very satisfied with the Support people of ReadSpeaker, who have been great to talk with and very helpful.Bengt Nilsson, Web Coordinator
