Many students have difficulty reading text. If they are using a computer they can have support to do this using Ivona MiniReader.
Ivona MiniReader is a free simple text reader which adds a floating toolbar on the screen and can read out text from almost any program – Adobe Reader, Microsoft Word, Google Docs, web pages etc.. MiniReader can use the free Scottish voice Heather and Stuart and most other voices on your computer.
This should be in the Applications Folder on all school computers: PCs, Thin Clients, laptops and netbooks. If it is not, please log a call with ITServiceDesk@eastlothian.gov.uk to request it. It can be installed remotely.
Remind students to bring in headphones!
