10 Free Text to Speech Tools for Educators ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Free Text to Speech Tools for Educators ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Med Kharbach:

 

Today I am introducing you to a set of awesome tools that allow users to easily select any part of a text and hear it in the voice and accent they  want. These tools can be very helpful for language teachers. Students can use them to improve their pronunciation and develop their reading skills. All these tools are easy to use and above all free of charge. Most of these tools are extensions that you can install on your browser.
