New in Lix: Text-to-Speech—a Convenient Alternative to Old-Fashioned Reading - 1 min read

If you’re like most of us, finding the time to read isn’t easy. So why not listen to your textbooks instead? We’re happy to announce the recent addition of text-to-speech (TTS) to the Lix platform, a convenient alternative to old-fashioned reading. Whether you’re cleaning your dorm room, or making pasta with ketchup, TTS allows you to keep learning no matter what you’re doing.

Here is a short overview of our new TTS feature, made possible through continued Lix innovation.

How can TTS help you study?

Developments in TTS technology have shown increased reading comprehension, improved student performance and heightened understanding of key concepts. According to Lix founder and Forbes 30 Under 30 social entrepreneur of 2019, Camilla Hessellund Lastein, “no student learns the same. At Lix, we continually develop our platform to assist every type of learner. Our goal is to make studying better for students worldwide.” TTS certainly plays a role in this.
