Jun 04, 2012 As promised, here’s how to make your Mac read out loud to you. It’s very handy. Note: here’s a link to my article about making your iPhone and iPad read out loud. Let’s start with Mail. Mail will read out loud any selected text. The NaturalReader Text to Speech app is a pdf to voice app for Android, which easily converts PDF text to voice. It has many natural-sounding voices to choose from and it allows for the ability to sync documents in a cloud account and CC mode. PDF, Word, RTF and TXT are also supported by the app.
Thank you for the question. I recommend enabling 'Speak selected text when the key is pressed' in your System Preferences so that your Mac will read back the text in Preview.
Follow these steps:
If you have trouble reading text on your screen, you can have your Mac speak text that’s on the screen when you press a key or set of keys.
- Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Dictation & Speech, then click Text to Speech.
- Select the “Speak selected text when the key is pressed” checkbox.
By default, speaking is enabled when you press Option-Esc. To choose a different key, click Change Key, press one or more modifier keys (Command, Shift, Option, or Control) together with another key, then click OK.
- To have your Mac start speaking, press the specified key. To stop the speaking, press the key again.
If text is selected when you press the key, the selected text is spoken. Otherwise, available text items in the current window are spoken; for example, if Mail is the current window, an email message is read. If no text items are available, you hear a beep.
