TextAloud 2 MP3 screen reading software


C$43.95


TextAloud converts any text on your PC into spoken words and MP3 files. It runs in the background - ready to read aloud your text from email, web pages, and documents. You can listen immediately, or save to WAV or MP3 files to hear later at your convenience.

To have text read out loud, highlight it with the mouse. You can have it read in place or you can have the selected text appear in the TextAloud window where each word is highlighted as it is spoken. The appearance of the text in this window can be customized to improve visibility. There are several voices to choose from and reading speed and pitch can be controlled to suit individual preferences.

Please note: the TextAloud CD-ROM is shipped without the box shown above.

TextAloud MP3 now includes Mike and Crystal voices from AT&T . These voices are the best available for clarity and you will be amazed at how natural they sound. TextAloud MP3 is easy to learn so you can put it to work for you right away. Everything is user friendly, from the HELP function to the VCR style playback controls.
