Does canvas or is there another type of software that will read to you what's on the page and does not sound like a robot?

Hello there, @JasonFlores ...

In Canvas, the Microsoft Immersive Reader is currently available for "Pages" content items only.  It is not available for other parts of a Canvas course such as Discussions, Assignments, Quizzes, etc.  It is only available for "Pages".  Here are a couple Guides for you that might be of help:

I hope one of these Guides will be of help to you.  Sing out if you have any other questions about this...thanks!  Take care, and be well.

Hi @JasonFlores 

Here are some other Screen-reader apps you might want to check out.......

You may also want to check with your school's access/disability services folks. Just as you don't need to have a visual limitation to prefer using screen-reading technology, you don't need to be disabled to make use of your access services folks at your school. They know things and are usually happy to help.

Good luck,

Kelley
