Have Cal­i­bre read to you

Computer Active (UK) - - Se­cret Tips For… -

If you’d like to have books read to you, you can use a third-party plug-in for the task. Down­load ‘TTS Ebook Viewer.zip’ from www.snipca. com/27294, but don’t click it. In­stead, in Cal­i­bre click the ar­row next to Pref­er­ences and se­lect ‘Change Cal­i­bre be­hav­iour’. In the win­dow that opens, click Plug-ins un­der Ad­vanced, then click ‘Load plug-in from file’.

Nav­i­gate to the saved ZIP file, se­lect it and click Open. Click Yes to the warn­ing, then OK. Restart Cal­i­bre, and open a book as if you were about to read it. On the bot­tom left you’ll see a Play/pause but­ton, and a Se­lect Mode op­tion, which lets you high­light just a por­tion of text to read aloud. This plug-in uses the text-to-speech fea­ture built into Win­dows, and doesn’t pro­vide its own voices.
