I had a great conversation with Paul Stisser, the Director of Educational Institutions and LMS Partnerships for ReadSpeaker. Paul has been a leader in ReadSpeaker's TTS Education initiatives. Prior to ReadSpeaker, Paul worked at D2L and start-up Moblmedia. He also has 14 years of education and teaching experience in Rochester, NY, specializing in Special Education and At-Risk Students. Paul attended St. Bonaventure University with degrees in History and Literacy.
We talked about ReadSpeaker which is a text-to-speech (TTS) company. With ReadSpeaker embedded into an LMS, a website, or learning content, the user can choose from 68 languages and over 245 voices. They can choose from a suite of reading and writing tools; personalize their reading speed, highlighting preferences, font, size, colors, and more; and select distraction-free “text-only” mode. We've been trying to raise awareness about TTS tools being not only for students who need them. Follow on Twitter: ReadSpeaker
