How to Use the Audio Reader

Studies Weekly Online has an Audio Reader function, which is located at the top of each article. The Audio Reader will highlight each word as it reads with an engaging voice. Students can adjust the Audio Reader speed by clicking the fast forward button and dragging to a faster or slower speed from the pop-up box.

Students and teachers can also adjust the speed when using the Highlighting Tool.  

Audio Reader for Assessments and Article questions 

Assessments and article questions also have the Audio Reader feature, which students can access by clicking the play button next to the question.


Reader Mode is also found within articles and activities. Reader Mode is located in the blue bar with the title of the article. Clicking here will cause the article to fill the entire screen for those who might need fewer distractions or larger font.

Reader mode will open in full screen. To close Reader Mode, click the X in the upper right corner of the blue bar.
