How to Make your computer read to you?
1. Find an article that you want your computer to read like this one and copy a portion or all the text from the article.
2. Next go to this website and paste the text in the box as seen below.
3. You may know the website as its Google Translate and what we are doing today is not translating anything, many people do not know that this program can actually read to you as I am about to show you now. Make sure the language is set to English.
4. Now in the bottom left of the screen you will notice a speaker icon, it’s very small and is at the end of the text box click on it and make sure your speakers are connected and turned up to a suitable volume.
Well what do you know the computer will read whatever is written in a fluent manner and is a great text to speech program and best of all its free to use and its other application are great as well.
