Some texts, questions, and answers in the activity or assessment are not read aloud correctly. How can this be fixed?
Research has shown that speech recognition tools can also serve a supporting function for students with learning disabilities in the areas of reading and writing. In allowing students to see the words on the screen as the software dictate, students can gain insight into essential elements of phonemic awareness, such as sound-symbol correspondence. This bimodal presentation of text can be especially helpful for students with learning disabilities and is thought to be why speech recognition has been found useful in remediating reading and spelling deficits.
Although no text-to-speech product is 100% accurate, Classworks believes that the assistive technology is a huge benefit to students.
We will continue to improve on the Classworks text-to-speech as the assistive technology continues to develop.
