NovaNET Courseware is now speech-enabled with Texthelp Systems’ SpeechStream, a text-to-speech toolbar allows students to read while hearing text read aloud by a digitized human voice. Students can also use the toolbar’s Translator feature to translate any unfamiliar words. They can have the translated words read aloud in Spanish and can control the speed of the playback so they are better able to comprehend the content.

NovaNET provides personalized, comprehensive online learning paths to help middle school through adult learners – especially those most at risk of falling behind – gain the skills for college and career readiness.
