Using text to speech software in a digital exam

Ans offers the option to have (parts of) the text read out loud to you by Readspeaker. This option may only be used if you have permission from the student dean. Don't forget to request this facility in your exam application (see also How to enroll in a test).

The software is available in both on and off campus digital exams.

This manual will describe how to use Readspeaker.
