Yes.. I was reviewing the list after catching up on my own inbox.  ;0)).

I’ll put a priority in on this as it was an issue a while back ...

Correct.
The only thing I have heard from their help desk so far is:
"Thanks for contacting the Vermont Help Desk. We appreciate that you took the time to point out this issue. Please continue to keep us updated on your end."

Hey all.. prior to the break weeks, there were a number of issues with TTS on iPads, etc.

I just got this in my inbox today.  This may solve some of the issues.

Quoted direct from an email today:
We recently released an updated version of the IOS app for iPads in order to fix an issue where people are saying TTS is speaking too quickly.

An updated version of the iOS Mobile Secure Browser (v3.1) has been posted in the Apple store and is available for download by users. The update is not required for testing, but the new version addresses the issue identified with the rate of speech when using the Text-to-Speech accommodation (specifically, that the default rate is too fast). Version 3.1 will provide students with the ability to adjust the rate of speech once they are in the test with an adjustable slider.
