ReadSpeaker is a long-standing partner of Moodle providing text to speech functionality for all content. The solutions are fully integrated in the LMS, and cloud-based, so the entire learning environment is instantly speech-enabled, letting students listen to text as they follow along with th ehighlighted text. ReadSpeaker has built a text to speech plugin that can be seamlessly integrated into any version of Moodle and activated across the platform or on a course-by-course basis. The plugin is very simple to implement and can be positioned in various places in your Moodle LMS, so students will have no difficulty finding and using the listen button.
With ReadSpeaker activated, learners have a suite of audio-enhanced learning tools at their fingertips, allowing them to use read-aloud support in their everyday learning. ReadSpeaker’s tools help institutions in supporting students, campus-wide and on an individual level, for all types of coursework, improving literacy and learning results, attracting and retaining a more diverse student population and increasing course completion. And because the tools are readily available across the Moodle platform and for all content, ReadSpeaker’s speech-enabled tools aid learners wherever they are, whatever they are studying, whether it’s reading, writing, math, assessments, STEM work, doing research, taking notes, studying, personal reading, or other ways of using text. Institutions that provide speech-enabled content improve learning outcomes, meet student success goals, increase course completion, meet accessibility requirements, attract and retain a diverse population, increase enrolments and make their individual education plan budgets more efficient.
