hello

having updated TextAloud I can share a $10.00 discount coupon with you
http://tipfrom.me/t/?OZrp9A

this tool is very interesting for proofreading (and clearly even for eyesight impaired) as you can copy-paste any text in it, or simply leave it capturing any copied text (CTRL+C) in MS Word, the browser or mail tool, and then the software reads loud the text as it would be another people (new voices are very close to human voice)

if you've never tried such a tool before, you'll be surprised on how many blunders left back on rereading or othe QA methods you can find when you look at your text with your eyes and the software reads the text

glad to be of help Oct 2, 2010

and about the voices
the new ones really deserve the expense (about 30$) as they are very natural, but you can use even the Windows ones, as Mary, Mike and Sam, that are embedded in the OS and even some voices for free whose links you can find here

be aware that some voices work ONLY with textAloud, while other work in every tool

I just bought it -- no coupon, howevericon_frown.gif -- and I'm so happy with it when I need to proofread texts. I bought the Cepstral David voice, and that's the one I'm using ...
