How do I enable text-to-speech on Content Assessments?

Platform admins can enable text-to-speech on assessments for students with IEP/504/ELD plans that require assessments to be read aloud. When you enable text-to-speech on assessments for a student, it enables text-to-speech on assessments for all content and diagnostic assessments across all courses that the student will take.

If you need to disable text-to-speech on assessments for a student at any time, you can follow the following steps, but toggle “Off” for “Text-to-Speech on Assessments”. 

To enable text-to-speech for each student:

  1. Click Setup in the left navigation bar
  2. Click Students
  3. Find the student who needs text-to-speech on assessments 
  4. Click the three dots next to the student's name
  5. Find the Text-to-Speech in Content Assessments section, located in Available platform supports.
  6. Select Turn on Text-to-Speech
  7. Toggle Disabled to Enabled
  8. Check “This student requires text-to-speech for Content Assessments in this course.
  9. Click “Save”

After text-to-speech on assessments is enabled for a student, they will see text-to-speech icons next to the question prompt, question-answer options, and passages within their assessments.
