Read it back to me using TTS Reader…

I have always had a fascination with “text to speech” readers and TTS Reader is no exception. What I like about this particular reader is that you can adjust the speed, pitch and volume to give it a more natural “voice” experience. The voices are generated through the process of synthesis which combines the mixture of sounds from a set of fundamental routines in order to create the robotic voices.

I use this reader to “read back to me” web pages, letters, documents, and my blog posts. It is always good to hear what you have written. I found that the simplest method to use this reader is to start up the program and minimize it to the task bar; then simply highlight and copy the text to the clipboard that you desire to have read back. TTS Reader’s built-in clipboard monitoring will automatically read the text back to you. TTS Reader is available as a full install (on your PC) or as a portable application that can be carried on your USB flash drive.

  1. Rick,
    Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I believe that this may be of help to some of my clients who have visual impairment, and cannot afford the hundreds of dollars these types of programs can cost.

    You continually impress me with the quality (and, quantity) of information you provide. Simply terrific site you’re running.
    Again, sir, a big tip of both my geek hat and my blogger’s cap to you.


  2. Thank you, TechPaul…

    TTS Reader is one of the better (small & portable)”text to speech” apps I have used.
