  • April 16, 2019 – Secure Browsers

    Chrome OS 73 is now supported with a possible issue. TTS voice check fails on some devices. The workaround is to uninstall and reinstall the app. This is random and currently there is no way to determine which devices will require intervention. AIR is working with Google to identify the cause of this issue.

  • April 9, 2019 – Quick Resume and Text-To-Speech (TTS)

    The Spring Smarter Balanced assessments and the WCAS have a new feature called Quick Resume. This feature reduces the number of steps required to resume a test that was paused. After a TA approves the student, the test will return directly to the next unanswered item without the student completing audio/video functionality checks. Without these audio/video checks, a student using TTS will not be able to change the TTS voice from the default set in the secure browser. Please refer to page 55 in the Technical Specifications Manual on how to set the student’s default text-to-speech preference. https://wa.portal.airast.org/core/fileparse.php/2317/urlt/Tech_Specs_Manual_2018-19_ADA.pdf
