Hi all,
Am I understanding correctly, that something has to be done to a document to
get the browsealoud software to activate? I can get it to read the demo
sites but nothing else. Any ideas?

Hi Tony,

I'm in the process of exploring this option myself. Just to add fuel to the
fire, have you seen ReadPlease ( www.readplease.com
<http://www.readplease.com>; ). ReadPlease is helpful to users who are
sighted but may have cognitive difficulties with reading digital print.

Hi. I'm wondering what people's opinions are about the browsealoud tool
from the textHELP company ( www.browsealoud.com
<http://www.browsealoud.com/>; ). It seems very easy to use but I'm not sure
how it 'play with' JAWS or Window-Eyes.

What do you all think of browsealoud as a basic, free text-to-speech tool?
