Because we believe in making learning as accessible as possible, the Snapplify Reader offers accessibility features including the ability to turn text to speech, meaning that you can choose to listen to the words rather than reading them.

Text-to-speech is a great way to handle assessments with learners who have exam concessions. Instead of finding separate venues and readers for each learner, with text-to-speech function you can simply have the question papers read to the learners over headphones in one venue. This saves teachers from having to find venues and external readers.

Activating text-to-speech on iOS

To activate the Speak Selection accessibility feature:

  1. Tap on ‘Settings’ on your Apple device.
  2. Tap on ‘General’.
  3. Tap on ‘Accessibility’.
  4. Tap on ‘Spoken Content’ and then make sure ‘Speak Selection’ on.
  5. After activating ‘Speak Selection,’ an option for ‘Speak’ will pop up in the same line as ‘Highlight’ when you select text in the Snapplify Reader. Select text as if you were going to make a note or highlight in the Snapplify Reader, and select for it to be read aloud.

Another great feature you might enjoy is the specialised font to help readers with dyslexia.
