ODYSSEYWARE Announces Release of Text-to-Speech Curriculum Feature

CHANDLER, AZ--(Marketwire - June 9, 2009) - ODYSSEYWARE®, Inc., a leading provider of online-based curriculum and e-learning solutions to schools nationwide, is pleased to announce the release of our new text-to-speech online curriculum feature for the 2009-2010 school year. ODYSSEYWARE curriculum is an Internet-based program delivering interactive, multimedia-enriched content to students in grades 3-12. Developed for 21st century learners, ODYSSEYWARE's technology-based curriculum offers the core subjects of social studies and history, math, language arts, and science, along with a variety of electives.

Meeting the needs of various learning styles, ODYSSEYWARE's text-to-speech feature allows students to choose different voices to have either a portion of text or an entire lesson from the curriculum read aloud. The ODYSSEYWARE text-to-speech tool helps students with grammar pronunciation, reading comprehension, and vocabulary development. Promoting independent study and concept mastery through audio learning, this text-to-speech tool is especially helpful for ESL (English as a Second Language) students, as well as students with impaired vision or dyslexia.

The ODYSSEYWARE text-to-speech curriculum feature gives students the opportunity both to listen and read lessons, furthering engagement in learning through the use of multiple senses. This audio tool also enables teachers to easily play a lesson to individual students or an entire class.

"At ODYSSEYWARE, we recognize that each child learns differently," said Kevin Youngblood, President of ODYSSEYWARE, Inc. "We're excited to add this new text-to-speech tool to our online curriculum, so students can choose from more learning options that will enhance their educational experience."
