    Have you tried TextAid yet?

    TextAid  is a standalone reading, writing and studying tool which is integrated into every MySCU Blackboard site.  It is accessed via the Tools menu. 

    Click the icon TextAid  in Tools to open TextAid, then click New Text for an area to compose text, copy and paste text, or open a document from your computer and have it read back to you. It will also let you download your selected text to an mp3 file to download and listen offline.    

    TextAid has Spell check and word prediction; a web look up tool for a selected word or text in Wikipedia or by Google Websearch; a personal library where you can save documents and access them from any device; OCR for text in scanned images - translates to text, that can then be read back to you.

    Did you know that TextAid also has a Web Reader ?  This is a tool that enables the ReadSpeaker widget on any website you visit.  

    TextAid and Readspeaker both have a full medical lexicon dictionary and will correctly pronounce medical and anatomical terms.  

    Both tools are 100% web-based and can be accessed on any device with an internet connection.
