New text-to-speech "sections" option added to many text activities.

The Tile and Horizontal activities, Paragraph, 1in3, 1in4, 1in5, Million and Next word now have a new feature: TTS sections.

If you have enabled TTS for your resource, you should see TTS sections as one of the TTS options for these activities. If you select TTS sections, a "Speak" button appears with a dropdown box for each sentence in the text. (See above). Click "Speak" to hear the current section.

See the embedded Tile 3x4 activity below as an example:

New text activity: Word Invaders

A new activity for textivate text resources, Word Invaders works in the same way as the normal Invaders, except that it takes words from the text rather than letters.

Students have to click the words in the correct order to fill the word gaps in the text segment that appears in the text box. Text segments are selected randomly from the whole text.
