Read Out Loud is a Text-to-Speech tool that is built into Adobe Reader. It reads text contained within a document window.

To use Read Out Loud, you need Adobe Reader and a Text-to-Speech engine installed on your system. Also the document must be accessible, otherwise it may not be read at all or it may be read in the wrong order.

To activate Read Out Loud:

  1. On the View menu, choose Read Out Loud > Activate Read Out Loud.

  2. Again go to View > Read Out Loud and then choose an appropriate option for reading:

  • To read the current page, choose Read This Page Only.
