Reading Out Loud

Reading Out Loud

Part of Adobe's efforts to accommodate visually impaired users, the Read Out Loud command will read a page or a whole document out loud. The Read Aloud feature converts text to spoken words. You can choose to have one page read or the whole document, and you can specify the reading order. While a PDF is being read out loud, you can always pause or stop the reading.

To have a PDF file read out loud

1.
Choose View > Read Out Loud and either Read This Page Only or Read to End of Document (Figure C.1). You can also press Ctrl+Shift+V/Command+Shift+V for the current page or Ctrl+Shift+B/Command+Shift+B to read to the end of the document.

Figure C.1. Acrobat can read a PDF document out loud to you.


The default voice will start reading.

2.
To pause the reading, choose View > Read Out Loud > Pause (Figure C.2).

Figure C.2. You can pause while Acrobat is reading to you.


The reading will pause. You can also press Ctrl+Shift+C/Command+Shift+C to pause; press it again to continue reading.

3.
To stop the reading, choose View > Read Out Loud > Stop, or press Ctrl+Shift+E/Command+Shift+E.
