Ensuring that courses support all learning styles and are accessible is central to education today. Research shows that bimodal learning improves word recognition, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, accuracy, and recall, as well as increased motivation and enhanced confidence for ALL learners. 

ReadSpeaker’s text-to-speech technology extends the reach of educational content by instantly creating an audio version of courses, lessons, tests, quizzes, assessments, reading assignments, and any other text-based content, including documents. Our cloud-based solutions are easy to integrate into the Blackboard learning environment, giving students easy access to audio within the learning environment.

ReadSpeaker supports universal design for learning and improves comprehension by simultaneously presenting information in visual and audio formats
