The text-to-speech functionality allows the test-taker to hear the test questions, or parts of them, read aloud.
Note: This functionality is only available in the Premium Edition of TAO.
To activate this functionality, test-takers need to carry out the steps below:
Click on the headphones icon which appears at the bottom of the screen after beginning the test.
Four icons, representing four options, will appear:
Hand over button: By clicking on this and then on a specific question in the test, that question will be read aloud. The current word being read out will be highlighted.
Play button: The questions on the current page of the test will be read aloud. The current word being read out will be highlighted.
Stop button: The recording will be halted.
Settings (interlocking cogs): The speed of the speech the test-taker hears can be controlled here.
