If you are looking to use a text-to-speak function, you can do so using your iPad or Mac (any Apple laptop or desktop computer running macOS).

On your iPad, you will first need to enable 'Spoken Content' in your iPad settings. To do this:

  • Launch “Settings”

  • Tap on “Accessibility”

  • Open “Spoken Content”

  • Slide “Speak Selection” ON.

You can then adjust the speaking speed rate and Preferred Voices, if desired.

Once you have enabled this feature on your device, open the Socrative App and navigate to your quiz. Hold your screen down to highlight where you would like to begin and select “Speak” from the pop-up menu. Your content can then be read aloud with the tap of a button!

Similarly, on your Mac:

  • Highlight the wording you would like to be read out loud

  • Right-click the highlighted section

  • Click "speech"

  • Click "start speaking"
