The ReadSpeaker Brightspace EHL Integration is the result of collaboration between D2L and ReadSpeaker to increase access to ReadSpeaker technology amongst the D2L client base. ReadSpeaker can be integrated across the Brightspace platform, or on a course-by-course basis. The solution can be used to read aloud both HTML content and online documents.
The ReadSpeaker BrightspaceL EHL Integration:
Statistics indicate a large number of learners can benefit from consuming content in multiple ways. The automated support for having content spoken aloud is a tremendous accessibility benefit; assisting users that have reading disabilities, are new to a language, or that simply learn better by listening.
Prior to the introduction of the integration, D2L clients were still able to leverage ReadSpeaker technologies within their course content. However, the process was very tedious and manual as the Instructor or Instructional Designer was responsible for adding HTML code to each page to add the "Listen" Button and ReadSpeaker configuration such as voices.
ReadSpeaker can be integrated with Brightspace Learning Environment 10.1 and above.
