At today's design crit ( 28 Aug 18) we talked about the current design/implementation of the Orator component. The Orator is the UI widget to control in browser text-to-speech/self voicing.

In the current implementation there are two options for voicing text on a page.

Below are options to improve the user experience of the Orator. Please note that at this time there was no clear direction to take, rather it was decided to try to wait till after the upcoming APCP pilots (October?) to hear user feedback, and go through further design iterations.
