File Conversions

Screenshot of files with conversion icon and resulting interface after clicking on the iconMoodle has a file conversion app that lets you request a different type of file than the one posted in your course. A pdf, for instance, can be converted to a variety of text file types, naturally, BUT it can also be converted to:

  • an audio file (featuring natural phrasing and intonation—and you can choose the playback speed!),
  • an e-reader file (with a choice of formats!), or
  • a Braille file.
Conversion options vary with the type of file posted. Learn more about converting files.
