Assistive technology/screen reader

4 out of 5 stars

Natural reader is a text to speech software that can read a variety of different documents, PDF, word, websites, excel and PowerPoint. There is a character limit but it is very high. There is a paid for and a free version. This is a review of the paid version. The product is not cheap but perfect for what I need it for. It has 6 voices - male and female, speaks 7 languages. They also provide free continued support. I like it because the voices are natural and not so computer Stephen Hawkins. A really good product that has opened up my world.

Natural Reader 14

Natural Soft

Over £200

The only reason I give it 4 is that it can only read PDF's where text can be selected.

Occasionally it can crash and not tell you why.

Costs a lot of money but because I'm a frequent user, it's so worth it.
