    TextAid by ReadSpeaker Educational Range

    At least 10% of children do not reach their full potential because they have difficulties with reading due to a SpLD, ADHD or reading in their non-native language. TextAid removes this barrier to learning by reading any text aloud. ReadSpeaker are world leaders in computer voice technology and the natural sounding voice will read back any text including worksheets, exam papers, pages of a book and websites. ReadSpeaker TextAid is browser based which means you don't need to download it onto specific devices. Students can use it in the classroom, at home and on their phone or tablet and all their work is saved into their online library. TextAid now reads in Irish also.

    As well as text-to-speech there are other tools too including a screen ruler, text mode to make text easier to read, translation, word prediction, download as audio and a highlighter tool which extracts key information.

    It allows students to work independently and improve comprehension. Students simply click play to listen to any text, reducing the need to rely on adult support. TextAid will read any document, even websites and text in a picture. Students can concentrate on the content rather than decoding individual words
