Bookshare Web Reader with Chromebook

Rate Topic 0

2 posts in this topic

Hello

I am having trouble with reading on a Chromebook. I have downloaded web reader and the recommended female voice extensions. Those extensions appear greyed out and don't seem to be active (?). Are there any how-to type videos I can watch to get step by step information on how to use Bookshare with a Chromebook ?

thank you

Hi Elisa,

We don't currently have a video for Chromebooks unfortunately.  If you go to chrome://extensions and the extension is greyed out or inactive, click the check box next to it to activate it. You may need to have your IT team enable this extension on some setups.

Once enabled you may still need to set the voice in the Web Reader settings, have a student select the Read Now link found next to the download button for a book, then the gear icon from the top to open the settings and choose the Google voice from the drop down.
