Some students require assessments to be read-aloud due to Individual Education Plans and other required testing accommodations. While Membean does not provide audio for assessments, you can enable highlighting on the quizzes so a student can use a screen reader extension on the Google Chrome browser to listen to the questions. This article will show you how to turn this feature on.

This preference only allows the assessment page to be compatible with screen reader apps through highlighting. For a student to hear the assessment, they will also need to be using a screen reader extension on the Google Chrome browser, like SpeakIt or Read&Write for Google Chrome. This option is not available on other browsers.

Enabling the Assessment Read-Aloud Option

The assessment read-aloud option is found within student preferences.

Enabling this preference will allow students to highlight on the assessment. Keep in mind, with highlighting enabled there is no way to disable the right-click definition while taking the assessment.
