New York-based cognitive therapy and personalized learning software Frenalytics released an upgrade to its software that introduces text-to-speech functionality. This native integration offers increased accessibility for patients and students with vision and literacy challenges and enables them to interact with Frenalytics in a brand new way.
“We are thrilled to release our native text-to-speech integration within our Learning Session module,” exclaimed Matt Giovanniello, CEO and co-founder of Frenalytics. “This is the first of many exciting AI- and ML-powered investments we plan to make over the next few months to make our personalized learning platform more accessible, interactive, and effective for all patients and students, no matter their disability.”
The Frenalytics text-to-speech feature leverages Microsoft’s Azure AI’s Speech service to deliver a natural-sounding voice. Within Frenalytics, question prompts, reading comprehension stories, and answer choices can now be read aloud at the click of a button – plus, text is read at a slower speed and with a human-like voice to help patients and students better understand what’s being read to them.
Text-to-speech has been a popular feature request for many school districts and healthcare organizations using Frenalytics. Beginning in early September, all patients and students can use the Frenalytics text-to-speech feature within Learning Sessions by clicking the volume icon next to a question prompt, reading comprehension story, or answer choice. Caregivers will soon have the ability to “enable” or “disable” text-to-speech within a patient or student’s profile, where question prompts, reading comprehension stories, and answer choices will automatically be read aloud in Learning Sessions when this feature is turned on.
