Texas has implemented Text-to-Speech accommodations for STAAR Online. Schools who want to use this accommodation should be using similar accommodations during the school year with day-to-day tests to familiarize the students with similar tools. Kurzweil 3000 allows you to import or scan tests and material into an audio visual format. Students can adjust the reading speed, size of text, color background, and look up definitions/synonyms/pictures. Teachers can add bubble notes similar to the "Pop up" feature in STAAR Online to scaffold questions or provide more support, as well as make certain parts of the text read silently, such as the reading passages on STAAR Online. Come learn more!
