Rock Rapids, IA, United States, 2009/06/09 - Alpha Omega Publications, a leading provider of Christian curricula, resources, and educational services, is pleased to announce the release of a text-to-speech feature in our Switched-On Online curriculum for Christian schools - AOP.com / AOPschools.com.
Interactive and Bible-centered, Switched-On Online is an Internet-based curriculum that offers the five core subjects of Bible, history and geography, language arts, science, and math for grades 3-12, along with various electives. Created for 21st century learning, Switched-On Online’s web-based courses offer Christian schools efficient, technology-based solutions and media-enriched content.
Meeting the needs of various learning styles, Switched-On Online’s new text-to-speech feature allows students to choose different voices to have either a portion of text or an entire lesson from the curriculum read aloud. The Switched-On Online text-to-speech tool helps students with grammar pronunciation, reading comprehension, and vocabulary development. Promoting independent study and concept mastery through audio learning, this text-to-speech tool is especially helpful for ESL (English as a Second Language) students, as well as students with impaired vision or dyslexia.
The Switched-On Online text-to-speech curriculum feature gives students the opportunity both to listen and read lessons, furthering engagement in learning through the use of multiple senses. This audio tool also enables teachers to easily play a lesson to individual students or an entire class.
“At Alpha Omega Publications, we recognize that each child learns differently,” said Rohn Gibson, Vice President of Marketing. “We’re excited to add this new text-to-speech tool to the Switched-On Online curriculum, so students can choose from more learning options that will enhance their educational experience.”
