Benefits of WordRead V2

WordRead Version 2 is an elegant piece of software that allows text on your PC’s screen to be spoken back in a natural human-quality voice. It is simple to use, and there is no need to copy and paste text into a separate window. Proof read and “listen to” Word documents, e-mails, web pages, spreadsheets, presentations and accessible PDF files.

In Microsoft Word, click your mouse at any start point and press the WordRead Play button. It will read from that point onwards, and highlight each sentence as it is being read. There are no limits to the amount of text WordRead will read – it carries on until the document has finished or you press Stop.

For web pages viewed with Internet Explorer, simply hover your mouse over the text you want to hear, and it will instantly speak back that text. Alternatively, click the mouse anywhere on the web page, press WordRead’s Play button, and it will speak from that point until you press Stop (or until the end of the web page is reached). It will also highlight the sentence in red, helping to track the audio.

You can even convert any Microsoft Word document, Internet Explorer web page (or any text copied to the clipboard) into an audio file, for replay later – or transfer to a portable audio player, such as an iPod.

Select any text from any software application with your mouse, and it will be spoken back immediately - no need to copy into another window or player.

And you can choose from over 17 Realspeak voices and languages in which to listen to your text.

Let your Ears do the Proofing!

Prior to the advent of electronic spelling and grammar checkers, documents were often proof read for accuracy by one person reading the text to another. The human ear can often pick up errors which the eye can miss. So technology can make your PC your proofreading partner!

Extra Voices

If you purchased WordRead with more than one voice, the primary voice (eg Jennifer / US English) will be installed at the same time as WordRead. However, to install the additional Realspeak Voices, you need to browse the WordRead CD or the supplemental Realspeak CD (if supplied) using Windows Explorer. If it doesn't install automatically, you need to look on the CD using Windows Explorer. There should be an extra folder called Realspeak Voices. Click this folder, and you will see the various additional voices on your CD. Double click the file called "setup" and the voice will install.

You should then be able to see the additional voices when you browse down the Voices in the WordRead Settings Box.
