Nowadays, education systems should offer flexibility to serve any kind of learners, including those with special needs. 'Campus Multimodal' project took advantage of Moodle Learning Management System to offer students two reading aid tools: ClaroRead and ReadSpeaker. A pilot test was run with one thousand students during a semester and the mentioned tools usefulness was measured through an interview and user logs. Results confirm the existence of widespread reading and writing problems among higher education students and also the utility of speech technology to minimize them.
