Technology Tip

Type it, Speak it, Listen to it


There has to be at least one creative teacher out there that can make use of this online text to speech website:


http://imtranslator.net/translate-and-speak/


You can use it to hear typed text spoken with any one of 14 different accents using 14 different voices. It's amazing!


I'm thinking kids could type sentences and have them read back to them, then amove on to typing short stories. It would be good practice for their keyboarding skills and the motivation of hearing their typed words spoken might expand their interest in writing!
