How can Canvas questions/content/directions be read aloud by a text to speech application

Jump to solution

My students use an application while they are at school in the Resource setting called Snap and Read, which allows them to hear the content read aloud.  Is there accessible applications where Canvas is automatically read aloud for students who cannot read grade level content? (ELL, low level reader, Special Education student?

Hi amgatman@pike.k12.in.us Welcome to the Canvas Community!

While there is just one built-in text-to-speech feature in Canvas - Microsoft's Immersive Reader - and it only reads content pages, there are third-party options available. Likely lots of them, but I will just throw out what I am familiar with......

If you have access professionals available at your school, you may want to talk to them as there may be prefered products, services or vendors.
