Using text-to-speech and the language translation tool in MyPath (instructions for students)

Transcription and audio support are important language features in Imagine MyPath. The transcription feature is called the language translation tool—it changes the text on the page from English to one of 61 additional languages. 

The audio feature is called text-to-speech, and it reads the text to you out loud. It is available in several of the same languages as the language translation tool. You can view the list of languages in step 5 of this article.

 Note

Your teacher must grant you access to these features by enabling them in your student profile. They must be enabled separately for MyPath Reading, MyPath Math, Imagine Science Corner, and Imagine Purpose. Talk to your teacher if you'd like to use these features and don't see them in your account.

To change the language and hear the text read aloud (instructions for students):

  1. Log in to the Imagine MyPath suite.
  2. Click Go on the applicable subject.
