Functionality with Read and Write Chrome for Speech to Text


For our students with dyslexia and other language learning disabilities (up to 10% of our population -, we need access to UDL tools, such as speech to text in Read and Write for Google Chrome. Integrated audio that is included in Schoology, as well as native speech recording in Windows, does not provide text feedback, which is essential for editing.  In order to provide the best support for our users, please consider working with TextHelp to increase functionality.

Thank you!

    As a school district who uses Schoology and Read&Write For Google Chrome, I would love to see this functionality come about. It would really help and make using Schoology more accessible to diverse learners.

    Accessibility should be the number 1 priority of any LMS. Learning can't be properly managed when there are barriers created by the technology.

    We are piloting Schoology for the next couple of months and doing our first training sessions today.  In this afternoon's session we have special needs teachers asking about Schoology's commitment to assistive technology.  I mentioned RWG and then found this thread.  

    I am hopeful that Schoology seriously considers integrating assistive tech as it would be very difficult to meet IEP needs when using Schoology without integrated assistive technology tools.

    Hi Ron, 

    Thank you for your feedback. 

    As an Enterprise user and Support Contact, you do have some additional options for assistive technology. Please reach out to your Education Impact Consultant for more details. If you're unsure of how to do so, please let us know and we can set up that conversation directly.
