For Mac users, there is a text-to-speech program called TalkButton that can aid with both reading comprehension and visual attention. It is an excellent tool for anyone who has reading difficulties, not only dyslexics. Microsoft Word allows you to copy text from virtually any internet or other source and have it read back to you while your eyes follow along in a number of accents or languages.
To make it easier for your eyes to follow along as the text is being read, you can even have the words highlighted individually by word or line. The reader’s needs can be met by adjusting the reading speed, so whether you need to swiftly scan an article or read through material leisurely. In order to fit the reader’s pace, the program even automatically scrolls the text. TalkButton can also turn a text file into an audio file in iTunes so you may listen to the recorded text while on the move on your iPhone.
Any language learning disability can benefit from this program, which also has applications for learning other languages and people who have visual impairments. Visit the website to find out more about TalkButton and its varied applications.
