From reactive to proactive accessibility: Text-to-speech benefits
Join Moodle, Certified Integration ReadSpeaker, Los Angeles Pacific University, and 21st Century Cyber Charter School for an interactive panel discussion on the difference between reactive and proactive accessibility.

Text-to-speech solutions such as ReadSpeaker can give students UDL-enhanced content and accessibility tools at their fingertips! We will also discuss the importance of universal design for learning, and how to meet the needs of your Moodle users before they ever request assistance.

This webinar is relevant for any instructor looking to make their online courses more accessible.
