Statistics Canada seeking input on pilot Text-to-Speech feature available on its website

Opened: August 2022
Closed: January 2023

Consultative engagement objectives

Statistics Canada is piloting a new feature, Text-To-Speech (TTS), on its website which allows text to be transformed into spoken words.

We would like to collect feedback on user expectations, the tool’s functionalities and areas in need of improvements.

The goal is to ensure that the tool is relevant and user-friendly for all Canadians, thus making the site more accessible to certain segments of the population including those with learning challenges and those with reduced vision.

How to get involved

This consultation is now closed.

There are two different TTS features being piloted. We invite you to visit the following links where the TTS features are available and share your experience by completing the short feedback form:
