Trying not to hijack this thread:

We are currently looking at moving as much to a 100% Chromebook environment
within our District.  Our budget and purchasing for the coming year have
been planned without continuing/replacing much of the older non-Chrome
systems.  As this may put us in a challenging place considering
accommodations such as speech-to-text and text-to-speech for standardized
testing, what have other Chrome environments done and planned for?

Is it overly optimistic/hopeful that this process will be available on
Chromebooks in the near future?

Thanks, and let me know if we should start a different thread on this.
