Hi D2L and ReadSpeaker Clients,
In the last rolling update from D2L, something happened that caused the D2L to skip the ReadSpeaker webReader player in quizzes. D2L currently has an internal/defect ticket (#01882671,) and they are currently working with ReadSpeaker developers to correct the issue. Since ReadSpeaker does not want students to be left without TTS on their quizzes/tests/exams, we have a workaround.
If the quiz is not in a locked browser, the ReadSpeaker TextAid Chrome Browser Extension can be used to read all parts of the quiz. Once the student has entered the test, the student will click on the TextAid extension. Next, they highlight what they want to be read and click Listen on the Extension Player. Please follow these instructions (opens in a new window) if the TextAid Extension is not installed on testing center computers. The student can log into the extension when they begin their quiz.
If you are a ReadSpeaker client and do not have TextAid, please email me at [email protected], and I will give you a temporary copy of TextAid so that you can install it on the computers where students will be testing.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.
