Enabling Text-to-Speech for a Student

Frequently Asked Questions

If students translate text on screen, can they also use the text-to-speech tool to listen to the translated text?

Yes, if students have both the translation tool and the text-to-speech tool enabled, they can use both of them for any text on screen.

How many languages are supported by the text-to-speech translation tool?

If students translate text into Arabic, English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, or Spanish, they can hear the translation read aloud in that language. The tool also supports read-aloud in English.


This feature allows a student to highlight text and translate, verbally, into another language. This will not change the the onscreen teacher's voices as this is only for text.
