  • Minor Text-to-Speech Issue Notification

    It's come to our attention that there may be a text-to-speech playback issue with Chrome Operating Systems, versions 88 and 89. We've had reports that the first time the TTS is requested in a test it is not heard and it needs to be selected again. To reiterate, this is relevant for the first occurrence in any given test and is remedied by selecting the playback a second time. If you experience reports of this issue with your students, please encourage them to select the playback button more than once. We are working with Google to quickly fix this problem.
