How do students use the text-to-speech functionality in a MAP Growth test?

The proctor must assign the text-to-speech accommodation to the student for text-to-speech to be enabled. See How to assign text-to-speech to a student. Students with text-to-speech enabled for their test will see extra options in the toolbar at the top of their test, along with the standard highlighter, eraser, and calculator (calculator only available on certain test questions):
