SpeechStream text-to-speech tool enabled in Publish Anywhere

We have enhanced Publish Anywhere to integrate with SpeechStream so that end-users can have activity content read to them by the SpeechStream Text-to-speech tool. You can enable SpeechStream in Domain settings.

Note: Make sure you set up your account with Texthelp before checking this box. If you don't, users might see SpeechStream buttons that don't work.


In this release, we also:

  • Updated the assessment calculator to report an 'Undefined' result when dividing by zero, similar to a standard calculator.
  • Fixed an issue where some browser and OS combinations would report a navigation error when attempting to view a course activity. 
  • Resolved an issue where some users were incorrectly prompted to verify the email entered in their User settings > Notification preferences when that email matched the user email attached to their account that had already been verified.


Updates in version ​​2021.08.28.6503.

Additions, Removal, or Changes::

  • GetProfilePicture: Removed the default attribute and added a usedefault attribute. By using the usedefault, an avatar will be returned if the user does not have a profile picture.


  • None
