Hawaii State Test Accommodation Guide for Text to Speech and Read Aloud 2023-2024Aug 17, 2023
The Text-to-Speech (TTS) and Read Aloud (RA) state test accommodations are available to students who have documented evidence of a profound or severe decoding/reading disability or who are blind or have significant visual impairments but have not learned to read braille. As a result, these students' disabilities severely limit their ability to comprehend or decode written text. The TTS and RA accommodations only apply to the ELA Computer Adaptive Test Reading Passages. The accommodations provide audio or oral delivery of the Reading Passages.
Note: Both of these accommodations are also available at the Designated Support level for all other portions of the state tests.
