Research indicates 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.

ReadSpeaker webReader can be integrated with Brightspace Learning Environment 10.1 and above.
