Our daily lives are filled with reading! You read your email, you read web pages, you read critically important documents as part of your job - you're even reading right now! Imagine how much more you could get done if you free up your eyes to do other work, while still receiving all of the information from your reading material. What am I talking about? I'm talking about LISTENING to text using TextAloud 3, the world's most popular text to speech utility!

TextAloud 3 reads your email, websites, reports, and more, aloud. You can also use TextAloud 3 to save your daily reading material to audio files that you can then play back on your portable audio devices. And while you're listening to all of this text, you could be doing something else -- cleaning, exercising, cooking, you name it! It's also great for proofreading your writing. You may have missed the same word over and over while reading, but when you hear it mispronounced, you'll know for sure!

I know what you're thinking -- robot voices will be the death of you. Not with TextAloud 3! TextAloud 3 is compatible with a huge party of lifelike, sonorous, and entertaining 3rd-party voices that will make it a pleasure to listen to even the driest material!

Ian Sample "TextAloud 3 is licensed per computer, and not per user."
Could someone please explain this?

Dan Alec please clarify licensing, what does "Whole House License" do?
I own multiple computers and I'd able to install in many computers I can?

Rick Ellis The whole house option is for personal (not business) users and allows you to install TextAloud 3 on all the PCs in your house running the full Windows OS. If you have any problems installing please contract our support by email to

Rick Ellis Hi Ian,

It means that we license based on how many PCs you need to install TextAloud 3 on as opposed to how many users. Some schools, for example, might ask about licensing for 600 students but we would need to know how many PCs, not how many students.

Kelly Hamblin I have used this lovely app before on another computer. Now, with this nice affordable price, I'd like to purchase this newer version. I had two ATTNatural Voices, Mike and Crystal. Will I be able to use the Mike and Crystal voices with this, and where should they be copied to?

I've had a problem. I ran TextAloud once, and then shut it down. All computer sounds then disappeared. NO sounds on games, no sounds on CDs. No sound at all. A reboot brought it all back, but I am baffled. Any hints?

Rick Ellis Hi Kelly,

Contact our support via email to and they can assist with locating the order for voices previously bought so we can get you updated downloads for the voice installation files.

Kelly Hamblin Thanks for answering, and I will try contacting support, but I fear it will be much too late for this deal.

Rick Ellis Hi Kelly,

It's a 2 day offer so we should have time to answer your questions. The no sound issue sounds like something with your PC and hopefully the reboot fixed it. Our support can review the troubleshooting for no sound if it happens again.

Kelly Hamblin Never had a no sound issue before. Also, I won't be home tomorrow until late.

Paul User How much would a commercial license cost and by "commercial" I mean used in Youtube videos or on music I create etc.
Sep 29 at 12:03pm Copy Link
Rick Ellis Hi Paul,

Commercial licensing is needed if you want to use any of the optional voices for commercial use and/or any publication of distribution of audio. It's not inexpensive and I think it's usually cost prohibitive for YouTube or Music unless you're already generating significant revenues. The voice companies quote commercial pricing so if you're interested email mentioning the voice(s) you might need and describe the intended use.

David O'Neill Rick,

I understand that the license is for a single computer - but may I later move it to another computer?

Sep 29 at 3:43pm Copy Link
Rick Ellis Hi David,

Yes, you can.

Kelly Hamblin No response from NextUp support, and it is now 10:43 p.m. So I guess I'll be missing this deal. Too bad.

David O'Neill Thanks, Rick.
