How do I enable the text-to-speech tool for individual students?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I enable the text-to-speech tool for individual students?

You can enable and customize the text-to-speech accessibility tool in Enhanced Accommodation (EA) assessments for individual students. You can also enable and customize this tool at the tracker level.

Note: The text-to-speech tool must be activated in your district before users can enable it for individual students. If you would like to enable the text-to-speech tool, please have your school or district administrator contact your Regional Education Consultant.
