I first heard about the TLDR extension for Google Chrome thanks to the always lovely Alice Keeler. And the timing was perfect since I have a long list of articles that I have been meaning to read for weeks now. In this screencast, I'll show you how to use the extension in combination with the text to speech function on your Mac to get through all of your articles in no time. Be sure to click on the resource links under the video to install the extension and for directions on how to enable text to speech on your Mac. This tool could also be very helpful for students who have problems processing longer spans of text, who have attention problems, or even to help those students who are a bit too verbose in their own writing.
Check it out and let me know what you think!
