Text-to-speek SELECTED text only
I don't know how Acrobat has not allowed for a Text-To-Speech option of SELECTED text only yet. It's an amazing tool for people with disabilities... especially those who need text read to them.
It is extremely frustrating having to listen to the text of a document from the begining if you only need the last paragraph read allowed. Extremely disappointed Adobe hasn't stepped up their game.
We understand your problem here. We are continuously working in making a better experience for our customer.
We have kept it in our radar and will implement in the near future.
This item does not have a lot of votes, but as a dyslexic, it is a tool I need on a daily bases.
It would be fantastic to have this feature build into all Adobe products.
Cheers and thanks
It's a work around, but not a solution.
The Red Out Loud feature is clunky and inefficient.
Here are some issues:
-It skips over areas or jumps around if graphics/tables are involved,
-It only reads portions of selected text instead of the all the text highlighted
-It re-reads items from the begining when you're trying to get it to only read ONE word.
-You can't get it to begin reading midway through a paragraph or sentence
-Turning on/off the function is not easily accessible via a right click or quick key
-Also super annoying that the Speech speed/voice/etc is set WITHIN Acrobat. Acrobat should utilize already established system setting (Under Accessibility/Speech) instead of changing the setting and preference lingo (Words per minute?!?! vs "Slow/Normal/Fast" slide bar)
Understandable it's a different software, but review Google Chrome's
(Version 69.0.3497.100) right clickable "Start Speaking" tool
It's simple, easy to use and works great every time.
