- Text-to-speech in Jed
A new way of doing text-to-speech was introduced in 2012. Find out about the improvements on the text-to-speech page, or view the video to see what's new.
On most browsers, pressing F11 makes them full screen, which may make the videos easier to watch. It's then F11 again, or ESC, to return to how you were.
The help videos require Flash player version 6 or later. Most browsers have this already. If you haven't got Flash, the videos won't play. You can download the Flash player for free from www.adobe.com/flashplayer.
Use at home
The most popular way to use our products from home is either through a link on your VLE or by using an access code – see our article about using from home for further details.
There is also a one-code-per-student top-up code way of using Jed from home. The top-up codes video shows how.
The Jed promotional video
This is the video used at exhibitions to display on the computer screens to show students what Careersoft's Job Explorer Database can do. Schools can use it too, for example in the entrance lobby or by the dinner queue. It's a great way to encourage students to make good use of Jed.
