ReadSpeaker Adds Document-Reading and Viewing Solution to Moodle

Document content on Moodle, the open-source e-learning software, will now be speech-enabled using the docReader service from ReadSpeaker.

The docReader service from ReadSpeaker is plugin-free and works across the wide variety of document types found online, including PDFs. Moodle end users can now speech-enable textual content without downloading any software. In addition to covering many document formats, docReader allows users to listen to content on many connected devices, including smartphones and tablets.

Learners can use docReader to listen to entire documents or choose to highlight and listen to individual sections. The docReader service allows learners to take their content with them on a jog, riding public transportation, in a busy office, and beyond. Learners can also choose to use ReadSpeaker's Enterprise Highlighting solution to highlight and listen to Moodle course content that is not presented within documents.

By making it possible to speech-enable document formats, ReadSpeaker helps Moodle customers make courses more accessible for users, and improves the reach of educators. Online learners can now use docReader to learn where, when, and how they choose.

"The ability for Moodle organizations and institutions all over the world to add the ReadSpeaker docReader document-reading and viewing solution is a very nice step forward for learners to have better access to different types of document formats," said Niclas Bergström, founder and CEO of ReadSpeaker, in a statement.
