5×5 Learning: Chunk it out; your reading of course!

11 Jan

AnnouncifyThis 5×5 Week of Learning will be filled with five different chrome extensions that engage and support teachers and students.

Announcify is a chrome extension that reads text to the user. It cleans up the online text by opening a new tab and then commences to read to the user. The paragraphed text being read is in focus while all the surrounding text is blurred out.Announcify_look

This is fantastic to use with students who are easily distracted with all the interactive online content surrounding an article/post. As well it reads quite well with access to 22 different voices/languages and speaking rates. (Change this in the Settings > Announcify > Options > Text-to-Speech.)
