COCC has the following accessible technology to assist with a variety of physical and learning disability needs:
ReadSpeaker- ReadSpeaker is a text to speech program that uses technology to speech enable websites and online documents and forms. Our license specifically integrates with Blackboard for student and faculty use. By using ReadSpeaker, it is creating a multi-sensory experience for students of all learning abilities. The speaker icon will appear at the bottom of the blackboard page. Users can read the whole webpage or document at once, or listen to selected sections. Users can configure reading speed, text color, highlighting by sentence and words, zoom or use a reading ruler. ReadSpeaker is compatible with the following file types:
MS Office- .xlsx, .docx, .pptx
Rich Text- .rtf, PDF, ePubs
Please contact our e-learning team (extension 7785) if you need support in checking or formatting your materials to be ReadSpeaker ready!
