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)

PAUL User I get the FULL price $34.95 when I try to buy (click the 'order now' button there is no 'Buy button').

How do I get a discount?


This is not working:

Your discount coupon code will be applied to your purchase when you click the 'Buy Now' button.

Constantin Florea @PAUL User, Could you please clear the browser cache and cookies and try again? That should fix the issue. Alternatively you may try another browser with the browser cache and cookies deleted.

Kelly Hamblin I know from experience that Text Aloud is the best text to speech app out there. What I'd like to see here is some discounted voices. Voices are very costy.

Roberto I found cheaper to grab the voice that i liked and the program in the same bundle. I hope to see some deals on fonts next time.

PAUL User A different browser sold the problem, thanks.

CJCotter In order to make this program work, do I have to copy-&-paste text into your program? I have a lot of books an PDF which I'd like some program to audibly read to me. Having to copy-&-paste material isn't going to be practical.

Rick Ellis Hi CJ,

It depends on the PDF, but for many PDF files that are accessible you can open them directly in TextAloud from the File Menu (File->Open File) where you can choose file type PDF. There are other ways to convert your document into something accessible. For example, Adobe has a free app that converts scanned text into a readable PDF via online. That is from an image not PDF file, but there are often ways to get at text you really need for personal use.

CJCotter Yes, in spite of the fact that I've had Adobe Acrobat XI Standard for many years, it has only been a couple of months ago that I discovered that feature....without having to do it online. Thanks for the reminder!

bvssunnydale Hi, I started to purchase and there's a "AT&T Natural Voices Engine" add-in offered. I'm wondering what the difference is and what this adds to TextAloud? Thanks very much.
Aug 29 at 6:03am Copy Link
Rick Ellis When purchasing only TextAloud, it uses Windows text to speech voice(s) already present on your PC. The exact voice or voices can vary depending on what version of Windows you have installed. The AT&T Natural Voices Mike and Crystal are optional voices that we offer on our website and as you noted buyers can choose to add them when purchasing TextAloud. If you want to see what Microsoft voices will be used on your PC, you can download the free trial of TextAloud and they will be available. The AT&T voices are not in the trial. We've sold the AT&T voices for years and most people find they enhance using TextAloud and they are attractively priced in the bundle offer.

bvssunnydale Hi, I downloaded the trail and it seems like a fine program. The "Fine Print" says the license if by-computer but doesn't mention if you can transfer from one computer to another (as a tech it's not unusual to go through half a dozen computers a year).
Aug 29 at 7:32am Copy Link
Rick Ellis The activation code allows for 2 installs so that should help. If you are transferring a lot you will need to contact our support to assist you with managing activations for the license which we can do.

Cary Adams If all we get is the Windows text to speech voice(s) already present on our PC, we might as well use Natural Reader which does that for free.

What's the point?

Emil Kucera Hello, two questions:
1. can this version be installed directly over my ver. 3 or should one do a fress installation?
2. will my TA3 acapella voices work with the version 4?
Aug 29 at 9:43am Copy Link
Rick Ellis Emil, TA4 can be installed directly over your TA3. If you purchased the Acapela voices from us and you have any issues with getting them going in TA4 then just email and we'll be glad to help.
