Does anybody have experience using text to speech software with Canvas? I came across this list of software. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks.

Hello snugent​,

I have not tried the readers on the link. However, I have done some investigating using NVDA.


  • Free download
  • Will read within Canvas
  • Ability to control speech- will read whatever the mouse hovers over (can change this in options)


  • Pretty robotic sounding- can adjust in settings
  • It reads content very fast- I'm pretty sure this could be adjusted

Here are some others I've looked into:

Read&Write for Google:

Snapverter- converts any PDF ( for inaccessible documents) and converts to accessible doc

Snapverter feature video- convert ANY doc to an accessible doc- annotate, highlight, screen reader, etc.

Read&Write- Powered by Google for accessibility

Read&Write feature video- shows all the tools i.e. dictionary, image dictionary, speak it, predictor, annotation, vocabulary builder, voice notes, etc.

Please let me know if you have any questions,
