Description: There are numerous open source literacy websites that are available for free access to literature in the classroom. Many of these websites have text-to-speech included with the literature or can be downloaded in a digital format to be accessed with iPads and iPods, Android devices, Kindles, and MP3 players. In this workshop, we will review the various literacy websites and demonstrate how to download books in various formats. We will discuss how these literacy websites can be used in conjunction with free text-to-speech software. You will also learn the criteria needed to get accounts from Bookshare and Learning Ally.
This workshop has a maximum of 15 participants.
This training is in the Assistive Technology Resource Center, so no food or drink please.
