Text Speaker 3.24

Listen to your Documents

The main purpose of Text Speaker is to read aloud your documents in human-sounding voices.  To start listening, import the documents in Text Speaker and have them read aloud.

Click Speak >> Speak Current File for the document to be read from the beginning.  As each word is spoken, it is highlighted so that you follow along with the text while listening.

In addition to reading the whole document, you have options to listen to only a part of it.

You can choose to listen to the document from the current location of the cursor.  Position the cursor to the location where you want the reading to start.

Click Speak >> Speak from Current Cursor Position.  Text Speaker reads aloud up to the end of the text, unless you stop it.

Another option is you can select a part of your document manually and have it read aloud.  In the document, select the required content and click Speak >> Speak Highlighted Text.

You can listen to the documents without importing them to Text Speaker.  Open the document and select the entire text or a part of it.  Use the keyboard hotkeys to start listening to the document.  Text Speaker needs to be running for using the keyboard hotkeys.
