Text-to-speech programs

There are a growing number of online tools to support students in need of literacy support. The Bright Ideas blog from the School Libraries Association of Victoria (SLAV) and the State Library of Victoria (SLV) has published an interesting article in new series from Catherine Hainstock which talks about how text-to-speech programs can support students’ reading online.  http://slav.global2.vic.edu.au/2014/02/12/text-to-speech-supporting-online-information-access/ .
The Bright Ideas blog is often a source of useful information for teacher librarians, and can be subscribed to.
