I am experimenting with this switch with a child with deaf-blindness on my caseload right now to see how it compares to the big mack and it's universal use.  I will report back on this at a later date.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, February 9, 2013 3:13 PM

Paul Hamilton has reviewed the Google Chrome TTS tool that can support all learners. Here is what he had to say about "Select and Speak".

 

"Select and Speak is a free extension for Google Chrome that provides high quality text to speech for any selected online text. Once installed, and text has been selected, there are three ways of having the text read aloud. You can click on an icon in the extensions toolbar, or right-click and use the context menu. Alternatively, you can use a customizable keyboard shortcut. This shortcut is ctrl + shift + s by default."
