Text Reader Software

Text Reader software has the capability of reading digital text out loud. The software usually works in one of two ways:

  1. Open the text reader software and then open a document to be read within the software. When you click a "read" button, the text is read out loud.
  2. Open any document in the usual way or view any text on the screen. The text reader software is active in the background, usually as a floating tool bar. Select the text that you would like to have read and click the "read" button on the toolbar to hear it.
