Social studies series adds text-to-speech feature

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt's HMH Social Studies Series is now speech-enabled with Texthelp System's web based literacy and language support technology, SpeechStream.

Embedded features include:

  • Text-to-speech with dual synchronous highlighting, which tracks each word as it is read aloud.
  • Word Translator reads back the translated word and definition.
  • Reading speed control allows students to read at their own pace as they work through the content.
