ReadSpeaker brings text to speech to a classroom near you

ReadSpeaker® is leading the way in making online text to speech a common service for learning in order to reach as many students as possible. ReadSpeaker speech-enables online educational content, including textbooks and course materials, making them more accessible to students with cognitive issues, learning difficulties, and/or vision problems.

As a teaching and learning aid both online and in the classroom, ReadSpeaker gives all students the option to listen to coursework via their computers, mobile phones, or tablets. Students do not have to download any extra software; they simply click and listen to the content of their courses.

ReadSpeaker’s most popular product, ReadSpeaker Enterprise™ Highlighting, helps learners better understand online educational content by speech-enabling and highlighting it at the same time. In this way, it allows for bimodal learning, which is proven to increase student retention, comprehension, and memory.

Several educational institutions and publishers have seen the benefit of adding ReadSpeaker to their learning management systems (LMS), platforms, and websites, including Discovery Education, Desire2Learn, Advanced Academics, Plato Learning, Castle Learning Online, EdOptions, aNewSpring, Insep, Georgia Virtual School, Southern Arkansas University Tech, American Institute of History Education, SoftChalk, Cengage Learning, and Flat World Knowledge.

Anytime, anywhere access to course content is a top priority for many students, which is why online text to speech is rapidly becoming an integral part of the learning environment. ReadSpeaker is proud to provide educational institutions and publishers a service that helps them reach a larger percentage of their students while increasing student comprehension,” said Joop Heijenrath, ReadSpeaker Cofounder and responsible for ReadSpeaker’s business operations.
