Text-to-Speech

Test-takers can elect to use the text-to-speech functionality for a Test.

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.
