@Penny, I agree. And if it is a remote class, breakout rooms can be used for the discussions about identity.

Is there any program available that has a more "natural" reading style?
Victoria Neff
01:29:25
Tip - if you are designing somethin with Google and you add in media (image, infographic, etc) you right click on the media and add Alt Text.
Ebony Vandross
01:29:46
Spechify is a paid program with more natural sounding voices
Ebony Vandross
01:30:07
some are even read by celebrities!
Rachel Riggs
01:31:26
In Google Docs, the “styles” are in a dropdown that says “Normal text” to the left of the font style dropdown menu.

Wakelet has an reader extension. I am not sure how accurate with the place holders

I just wanted to take a moment and say that I have had the privilege to meet amazing people coming in to different presentations. I see all of you throughout meetings and then, when I see your introductions, I'm aware of how far most of you all are. Thank you for your comradery, your willingness to share, and your investment to our Adult Education students! It warms my heart to know that such commitment can be found anywhere you go.
