The computer reads the text for you!


Some students like multitasking. They would like to study as they do other duties like for example cleaning their room, cooking etc…..Other students have impairments with vision.

What’s the solution? Well a program can transform words into sounds where the computer reads the contents of a page and transforms it into speaking...as if a person is reading the text!! Some students would prefer to study in this manner, because it helps them assimilate better the educational content. It helps them to face the lonely days of studying especially if they are living on their own.

Our solution works in Linux, Windows, Solaris, Android and Mac. It is called espeak. It can be downloaded from here. If one needs documentation, it is here. The forum is quite helpful for newbies.
