Does CANVAS have an integrated Audio file or Speech to text/transcript converter? If Yes, where do I find it?

Hi @tspiege 

Canvas does not have a native text-to-speech application, but there are several LTI apps that work great in Canvas.

  • Microsoft Immersive Reader: this free tool is being "trialed" in Canvas, but the trial has already lasted more than a year. I really like this tool, but it does have some limitations. Because it is a new tool, it is being updated all the time, and we may see most of those limitations go away. Learn more at 

    How do I use the Microsoft Immersive Reader when viewing a page as an instructor?

  • There is also a rather exhaustive list compiled in response to another member asking the same question at Text to Speech.

Good luck,

Kelley
