Under Consideration

For the reading accommodations of students can we get pdf documents that are uploaded into homeroom to be read by the text to speech option of the ipad

I like this idea a lot.


Is it enough if they were just able to highlight the text like on a normal webpage? Or would it be better if we added a button to read it aloud?

For students with reading accommodations, the reading option is valuable. It allows the student to have the text re-read to them as many times as they like. it also helps with their focus and attention because the earbuds/headphones block out noise distractions.

Students with the reading accommodations will take the state exam on a computer that will read the text to them. This accommodation is also used in the classroom, but a teacher has to do the reading.
