The task of helping struggling readers stay motivated and at grade level is a difficult one. ReadSpeaker TextAid helps teachers and institutions face accessibility challenges with its read-aloud reading, writing, and studying tool, helping those with learning disabilities become confident, autonomous learners.
ReadSpeaker TextAid uses bimodal presentation and aspects of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to let students listen to an audio version of content while reading along with the highlighted text. This text can come from websites, emails, scanned documents, textbooks, PDFs and more. Students can listen to any text with just one click of the ‘Listen’ button.
And it is a 100% web-based solution. That means no downloads and the ability to use it anytime, anywhere, and on any device, whether in the classroom, at home or on the go. Students can access a reading assignment at school, and then log back in at home and complete their homework. ReadSpeaker TextAid even reads to a student as he writes.
ReadSpeaker TextAid fully supports integration into an LMS as an “LTI Tool”. All LTI capable LMSs are supported, such as Blackboard, Brightspace, Canvas and Moodle. This means that TextAid can be made available to students through the LMS without the need for special user registration/sign-up or additional login. It supports both automatic registration as well as non-automatic registration. It is also possible to allow or disallow external login (login to TextAid outside of the LMS).
Literacy software uses text-to-speech technology to allow students to listen to an audio version of any written content while following along with the highlighted text.
