They moved it! It's now under the Accessibility settings in the System Preferences. It used to be under the microphone icon/ dictation and speech.
Not sure if there is a new resource to point students towards. I'm guessing there is.

Caution - External Email
When working with students with Macs, I've always sent them a link to the instructions for using their Macs to read short pieces, in addition to giving them Kurzweil. I met with a student today, and went to send the link I usually use, and...it's a 404. And all my searching on google only brings up years-old instructions for using the technology.
Has Apple suddenly removed this functionality from Mac OS? I can't believe that they would have, but it appears to be gone. Anyone have any information to say otherwise?
