Note: As of 03/11/2021, Buzz supports SpeechStream Version 3. This article includes instructions on how to update to V3, and we recommend you upgrade as soon as possible.
To enable SpeechStream:
Note: If you are using a previous version of SpeechStream in Buzz, we recommend you upgrade as soon as possible. When you do:
- Acquire the SpeechStream V3 config value from your contact.
- Acquire and update the SpeechStream URL.
- Ask your SpeechStream contact to set the start point element ID in your speechstream config file to the value text-help-ct-31.
- Save. This setting is applied to all courses and subdomains.
Once SpeechStream is enabled for a domain, teachers can enable it for specific assessments using the Assessment activity editor > Advanced assessment options.
Use the SpeechStream toolbar
Pressing the button (which looks like an ear) hides and shows the SpeechStream toolbar that reads the assignment text aloud using the play button.
Depending on your configuration with Texthelp, your SpeechStream toolbar can offer additional tools (learn more).
