Create an exam with text to speech
To allow text to speech for all students on an exam, choose the alternative 'All students' in the drop-down menu.
Allow text to speech for an individual student by going to "Students" In the left main menu.
Find the student and enable “Allow spell check for this student” in the accessibility settings and then save.
If you don't want students to have text to speech during an exam you select "None"
NOTE: If a student uses headphones, these need to be connected before the exam starts for it to work during the exam.
In the top left corner next to the settings icon you see a speaking figure (see Figure 2). If you press this icon while you have text marked, it will then be read out loud. Text to speech is also possible on PDF documents and websites.
