Text to speech

Our ebooks and electronic course materials are generally compatible with screen readers, which convert text to speech and read the words aloud to you. NVDA’s free screen reader can be downloaded at There’s also Narrator, which is built into Microsoft products, ChromeVox, which is preinstalled on Chromebooks, and VoiceOver, which is built into Apple products.

You can also utilize the read aloud function in the ebooks. For example, if it’s a VitalSource book, the directions for using that feature can be found here. Bookshelf eTextBook Read Aloud – VitalSource Support
