TextAloud is a classic and useful multimedia application based on the speech synthesis technology. It’s ideally suitable for people with dyslexia or loss of speaking ability, as well as anybody who likes to listen to text content or often needs to read materials out. It is able to convert the text in any application into a naturally sounding voice or audio file. It runs in the system background, waiting for users to call it to read the text in an Email, Web page, or any other files on your computer whenever necessary.

As a professional, leading text-to-speech software, TextAloud can read a specified amount of text content directly with one click. It supports the conversions between more than 29 languages and multiple accents, supports voice selection (providing exciting advanced voice sources from ATT, Cepstral and NeoSpeech), speech rate adjustment, volume adjustment, and so on. As a result, you can produce speech reading files (i.e.: audiobook) that fully meet your needs.

TextAloud employs the way of monitoring clipboard to grab the text to be spoken, so user can start TextAloud by directly copying the text content to clipboard. At the same time, users can choose to listen to it right away, or save it as an MP3 or WAV file for later listening with a media playback program. In addition to the voice engines that come with TextAloud, users are also allowed to download other voice sources and vary them according to their preferences.
