How do I enable text-to-speech on 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. Click the “Manage Focus Areas” tab
  6. Select “Text-to-Speech”
  7. Toggle “On” for “Text-to-Speech on Assessments”
  8. Check “I understand that this student will be granted text-to-speech tool”TTS_admin_toggle_on.png
  9. Click “Save”
  10. Click “Close”

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. 


To hear the text read aloud, the student selects the icons. mceclip0.png
