To ensure accessibility of IITE web resources for various groups of users including those with special needs, IITE in cooperation with the ReadSpeaker enterprise have launched a new web-service that provides instant audio version of IITE online content by means of speech-enabling application. The Partnership Agreement was signed between UNESCO IITE and ReadSpeaker enterprise in August 2012 (for more information on the ReadSpeaker enterprise go to www.readspeaker.com).
Each web page is equipped with a “Listen” icon, clicking on which initiates audio synchronizing of the page content. The icon settings allow to choose highlighting options (word and sentence, sentence only, word only or no highlighting) as well as regulate the volume and the speed of play.
Enjoy listening to IITE web content!
