text-to-speech, OCR

Looking to get underway with text-to-speech and speech-to-
text with middle elementary students. Ideally, we'd be
purchasing tools like Co:Writer & Snap&Read. Not sure that
will be the case. Other suggestions for OCR text scanning and
conversion with iPads?
TIA for you input!

Don't ipads already have those accessibility things built in? Anything you use the keyboard for their is a microphone picture that you click on and can talk your text into the device. I know that you can highlight and have things read to you by clicking on speak.

Our district purchased the Co writer stuff. Over the years I have shown many how to use it and few ever do past once or twice. I like having the option, but in group settings I think it is just harder for them to use well.

Thanks for your reply, kahluablast. iPads do have
accessibility features. So far though, adjusting settings
for pitch, rate, and choice of voice haven't yielded a
satisfactory voiceover for use with students. Still trying!
I may look to other apps, next.

Best,
Roz
