Why Text-To-Speech Technology Is Essential For College Students

Posted by on May 29, 2020 in Technology with 0 Comments

Heading off to college is a momentous and hard-earned occasion. Years of schooling and studying have led to a new chapter in a life full of boundless opportunities. While most students are aware of just how big entering college life can be, most students don’t know how to use essential programs to get ahead in their classes. Sure, each student is given a list of what to buy for their dorms and what textbooks to purchase at the campus bookstore, but what about programs that can really help a student thrive? One of these integral programs for college students is text-to-speech technology.

Though often used for aging adults, school-aged children with learning disabilities, or those doing YouTube voiceovers, more and more college students are finding that text-to-speech is a gateway to greater productivity. How can text-to-speech help? We’ve rounded up three key ways in which this technology is essential for every college student below.

Editing and Proofreading Essays

Nearly every college class will require a student to churn out several essays a semester.  Each of these essays will have to be well-written, coherent, logical, and sound in tone. Of course, they will also have to be absent of any big grammatical errors. Proofreading an essay before turning it in is paramount to success, yet being pressed for time or simply feeling overworked can lead to less than favorable editing results. Oftentimes, it is hard for college students to edit their own work.

This is where text-to-speech can help. Any student can input their essay or paper on a text-to-speech platform and hear their words read aloud. Hearing this content out loud allows students to hear what works and what doesn’t, editing as they listen and go along. Additionally, many grammatical errors can be heard as the AI reads. This makes the editing process easier while ensuring that every essay sounds good.

Listening to Notes

Even if a student rarely studied in high school, they’ll probably have to hit the books for at least a few classes in college. Unfortunately, demanding schedules, work, and social obligations can make it difficult to find the time. Multi-tasking is essential for college students and text-to-speech can help.

All a student has to do is input their notes onto a text-to-speech platform such as Notevibes and listen as they accomplish other tasks. What’s more, students can download their notes as an mp3 file and even listen on the way to class or while working out. Suddenly, studying can be fit into nearly any student’s routine or daily life, making it easy to ace those classes and maintain a high GPA.

Downloading Lecture Notes

Missed a lecture or in-class meeting? Many professors allow students to download lecture notes offline. Unfortunately, reading those notes may not be as effective as hearing them out loud. This is where text-to-speech comes into play. All a student has to do is download the lecture notes and then transcribe them to audio on a free or paid text-to-speech platform.

There is no limit to how long a speech or lecture can be and the file can easily be downloaded to any smartphone, device, or tablet. Even if a student can’t be in the class due to an illness or obligation, they can still hear their professor’s words out loud and take their own notes as they go.

The Bottom Line

So much of college life requires the ability to multitask and learn on the go. With text-to-speech technology, students are not bound to dorm rooms in order to study, edit, or listen to lectures. They can take those things with them as they go about their busy lives. This enables any student to study and keep up on work without sacrificing other obligations or activities.
