A sustainable model for audio readings: transforming the set readings into podcasts.
Denby Weller

When a student asked, “I’m dyslexic, what do I do about the readings?” I set out to find a solution that provided genuine equity. Previously, we would suggest a student try to find a text-to-speech tool to help them. Now, we can generate audio readings for them. Leveraging my skills as a digital producer, I developed a four-step process that uses automatic text-to-speech engines to transform thousands of words into audio readings. The process takes less than an hour for each reading and outputs a small mp3 file that students can listen to on the go.
