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 4, the world's most popular text to speech utility!

TextAloud 4 reads your email, websites, reports, and more, aloud. You can also use TextAloud 4 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 4! TextAloud 4 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!

    Please note folks, version 4 of TextAloud brings the following improvements:
  • Improved User Interface
  • Pronunciation Dictionary Enhancements
  • Integration with Pocket and Instapaper
  • Rebuilt Floating Toolbar
  • New Theming Support (Skins)
  • Article List on the Left

Bill M Works great with Win 10 and integrates beautifully in Firefox and Chrome.
I have been using it for years with Paul16 voice and find it to be indispensable.

Eros User Can the software also create a transcript from text or audio?

Rick Ellis TextAloud 4 converts electronic text to speech using computer synthesized voices developed from human speech. That can be heard by playing it within TextAloud 4 or saved to an audio file like MP3.

TextAloud 4 does NOT create a transcript from audio or have any voice recognition capabilities.

P User Hi NextUp,

i would like to know what is the maximum size of text file can be converted?

I would ideally have some of my ebooks converted so that I can listen to the audio file. I am assuming that the exported audio file could also have text read out at a high absolute speed.

Thank you

Rick Ellis We don't know of any hard limit as to the maximum size of text file can be converted.

When dealing with your ebooks and concerned about size, you can use the built-in File Splitter to split the audio by chapter. The file splitter can split the ebook into multiple articles, and you can also split into text files that you can load into the Batch File Converter The Batch File Converter never has more than one chapter loaded into memory at a time.

There is a free trial that you can download from to see how it works with your text. Support is by email to should you have further questions.

Colin McAllister Hi. Any chance of getting voices other than just American in the sales bundle? Thanks.

Stephen Warkentien I am interested in voices also. I already have Text Aloud 4 so I am interested in voices only.

Thanks in advance.

Colin McAllister Ok. I'll be a glutton for punishment and try asking another question...Does TextAloud work with CereProc voices please?

Norwel Gordon I purchased TA-4 plus a voice package on BDJ yesterday. I promptly received a pop up from "NextUp saying:
"Thank you for placing your order. We appreciate your business.
Your order is processing and you can expect to receive a receipt and delivery information via email within the next several minutes."
And I promptly received an email receipt from PayPal confirming payment to FastSpring. But so far no email from the vendor or FastSpring. As suggested I checked Spam, nothing there from either. Please help, Thank You

Rick Ellis Hi Norwel,

I just resent your order delivery email through FastSpring. Please check your spam folder. If you still do not receive, send email to for assistance.

Rick Ellis We don't presently have other promotions for voices.

Rick Ellis Colin, if the Cereproc voices are open sapi5 voices then they should work in TextAloud 4. Make sure to ask the seller first in case the voices might be locked to another app.

Norwel Gordon Hi Rick,

Thank you. This time the email from FastSpring arrived promptly.
I appreciate your prompt attention to my complaint.

John User I was going to purchase this. After downloading it, I find it easy to use with nice features. Unfortunately, when I select, "Get This Deal." and am forwarded to the Text Aloud web site... I see the 50% off discount is not honored. The Price shown is $34.95, not $17.47. Also it looks like you have to pay extra for voices.

Please advise?

Thank You,

John M.

Rick Ellis John, this typically happens when you need to clear your browser cache so the BitsDuJour offer will show correctly. If you're still having problems with that send email to and someone will assist.

When purchasing only TextAloud 4 with no optional voices, it uses the Windows text to speech voice(s) already resident on your Windows PC. This can vary depending on what version of Windows you are using or where you are located. Optional voices like AT&T, Acapela Group, etc are available at an additional cost.
