How does it work?

Listen to the main content
You simply click the listen button to listen to the web page's content:

Listen Button
A control panel will appear (see image below) and ReadSpeaker automatically starts reading the text of the web page out loud.

Control Panel
In the control panel you can:
• Adjust the volume
• Pause the reading
• Stop the reading
• Restart the reading
• Choose "No sound?" if your browser does not support flash
• Choose "Settings" if you want to customize the behaviour of the service

Listen to selected text
You can select a part of the text that you want to listen to and then press the pop-up listen button which appears next to the mouse pointer. When you click the pop-up listen button, a smaller control panel will appear (see the image below) and ReadSpeaker will automatically start reading the text you have selected.

Control Panel
In this control panel you can:
• Pause the reading
• Stop the reading
• Restart the reading
• Customize the behaviour of the service by clicking on the wrench icon

In the settings menu you can:
• Choose whether you want to have the text highlighted word by word and/or sentence by sentence, or turn off the highlighting
• Choose whether you want the pop up listen button to be shown when text is selected
• Choose whether you want the reading speed to be slow, medium or fast



If you click on the flash player it will be in focus so that you can control it with the keyboard:
