Hi Folks,

I wonder if any of you are familiar with ReadSpeaker, which is a text to speech add-on for course management software? The people in our Teaching and Learning Centre, who support our LMS system (CANVAS) are considering purchasing the product and asking for input.

I have seen only a few comments on another listserve...one which raised the question of the value of the software relative to use of a program such as Read and Write Gold, and one which raised issues around how ReadSpeaker handles LTI within the LMS system.

I would appreciate any comments or input you may have.

Warm regards,
