If the download option is enabled, students will be able to download the text as an mp3 file with an audio version that they can listen to offline.
The text in the digital test that is being read out loud, is displayed at the bottom of the page in large font size and simultaneous word highlighting. Students can play, pause or stop the audio and increase and decrease the size of the text.
By enabling the help setting, students can get clear instructions on how to use each Readspeaker feature.
By enabling the lookup setting, students can select a word and find its definition in the dictionary. The available languages can be found here.
If page mask is enabled, a horizontal bar is shown and can be moved along with the reading to bring out the lines being read by shading the rest of the screen. This makes it easier for students to focus on smaller portions of text at a time.
Read on hover
Read on hover helps students to focus on the text, paragraph by paragraph. The student can listen to a single paragraph being read out loud by simply hovering over it with the cursor.
By enabling settings, students can personalise the reading speed, reading volume and highlighting colors to their own preferences.
The simple view offers the student distraction-free reading. The student can view the text in plain text format and is able to personalise the font size, font, background text colour combination and text spacing.
By enabling the tool toggle, the student will see a pop-up control panel where they can pause/play the audio and toggle the automatic scrolling of the page.
If the translation setting is enabled, selected text can be translated to a number of languages. The translation of the selected text will then be read out loud. The available languages can be found here.
By enabling voicesettings, students can personalise the reading language voice.
