Is there software which will read text aloud to me?

Texthelp Read & Write will read text such as Microsoft Word, emails and the Internet aloud to you. There are also plug-ins available for the Google Chrome browser which will read webpages and Google Docs files aloud.  See the Library website Software page for more information including tutorials.

There are also some useful accessibility tools built into Microsoft Office:

What is "Speak" and how do I use it?

What is "Read aloud" and how do I use it?

What is "Immersive Reader" and how do I use it?

You can also have text read aloud on your Chromebook and iPhone or iPad.
