We know it’s helpful for some users to have longer portions of text read aloud. That’s why we don’t place any digital rights management (DRM) restrictions on Khan Academy content; you can easily copy and paste articles into read-aloud software. We only ask that you include attribution when appropriate.
Here’s one approach:
- Copy and paste text from Khan Academy into a Word document, and save it as a PDF.
- Open the PDF in a PDF reader—Adobe Acrobat Reader DC , for example, is free.
- In Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, click on the Read Out Loud option in the View menu.
This approach may be helpful for a variety of users, including younger students who can benefit from being read to and students who process auditory information more readily than visual information.
We’ve noticed that Khan Academy learners who require read-aloud capability are often already comfortable with their preferred read-aloud tools. Our goal is to make sure Khan Academy is easy to use with the tools learners are already familiar with.
