Text to Speech
To create Readspeaker-friendly courses, the CETLOE suggests faculty create as much content as they can using iCollege’s HTML editors. Free HTML courses for those who would like them are offered by the CETLOE’s PantherTech workshop team.
Get started with the Readspeaker suite:
Use ReadSpeaker in iCollege
webReader and docReader
ReadSpeaker webReader and docReader are automatically enabled in all iCollege courses in the course Content. webReader appears as a “Listen” button on all HTML-created text that plays an audio version of content when pressed. docReader appears at the bottom of compatible document types, and it allows students to listen to audio versions of common document types.

- docReader: for more invormation about docReader, including compatible file types, visit readspeaker.com/readspeaker-docreader/
ReadSpeaker TextAid is a web-based tool that allows students to listen to audio versions of content outside of iCollege while reading along with highlighted text. This text can come from websites, emails, scanned documents, textbooks, PDFs and more. ReadSpeaker TextAid can be added to any iCollege course as an External Learning Tool.
