Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, February 9, 2013 12:13 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."

 "Children and teens with learning disabilities sometimes have a hard time with social skills and behavior, including reading or communicating nonverbal signals. The following mobile apps may provide your child or teen with some high-tech support. Although we did extensive research on available apps, we also learned that just because “there’s an app for that” it doesn’t mean that it’s right for everyone."

Kit Hard has created a list of Chrome Apps and Extensions that enable reading and writing supports such as text-to-speech, speech-to text, and dictionary tools for students in my district.

 

> For text-to-speech Kit recommends the Chrome extension - Chrome Speak  The student highlights the text, right clicks and selects speak.

> The Google Dictionary extension will open a definition and audio for any word on any web page by double clicking the word.

> The Read & Write extension for Google Drive puts a toolbar on the top of the Google Docs editor that adds text-to-speech, a dictionary tool, visual dictionary tool, and special highlighting tools with extraction features.

> The Announcify extension takes online articles on sites like CNN or NYT and strips out all adds and distracting visuals, so that only text is visible, enables text-to-speech, and has easy option for enlarging text.

> Voice note is a Chrome app that is equivalent to Dragon Dictation for doing voice-to-text.

Excellent, free tool/ software for educators and students, as well as all individuals who may need an accessible format, or those who simply enjoy ebooks.

calibre can convert from a huge number of formats to a huge number of formats. It supports all the major e-book formats.  

The conversion engine has many features. It can rescale all font sizes, ensuring the output e-book is readable no matter what font sizes the input document uses. It can automatically detect/create book structure, like chapters and Table of Contents. It can insert the book metadata into a "Book Jacket" at the start of the book.

calibre can directly connect to all the major (and most of the minor) ebook reading devices, smarthphones, tablets, etc. In addition, using the Connect to folder function you can use it with any ebook reader that exports itself as a USB disk. You can even connect to Apple devices (via iTunes), using the Connect to iTunes function.
