Audio Read-Aloud is a helpful feature that allows users to play and control an audio recording of each student book in the Amplify Science K–5 program. This functionality provides students the immense benefit of associating written and verbal language. It also provides access to the texts for students with visual impairments. The audio is available in both English and Spanish versions of the books, giving young students the opportunity for added support as they learn to read in either or both languages.

Audio option on each page: The audio feature is collapsed by default at the top of each page so that it remains unobtrusive.

Fine-tuned controls: Once users expand the feature, they have the option to play, pause, reset, scrub through the timeline, and set the speed. They can re-collapse the feature when done. If the audio is not working, try clearing the browser’s cache.
