Accessible Text-to-Speech Options for Students Who Struggle with Reading
Bone, Erin K.; Bouck, Emily C.
Preventing School Failure, v61 n1 p48-55 2017
As students progress through school they spend more time reading to obtain information. Reading to learn can be a struggle for any student, but it tends to be a bigger obstacle for students with disabilities. Using text-to-speech applications and extensions is one way to assist students with disabilities who struggle to independently complete reading assignments. This article presents low-cost text-to-speech options that can be used to support struggling readers, including those with disabilities. Although many quality reading tools exist, this article provides options for teachers and other school personnel trying to balance the needs of students with the realities of school budgets.
