(Chromebook, Chrome bowser)
I like to read my writing out loud as a final check for grammer and flow. It is even better when someone else reads it to me. But my spouse has better things to do with their time. So I had to figure something else out.
There is a browser extension (Read Aloud) that reads highlighted text on the screen. Select the text, right click and pick “Read Aloud”. The voices aren’t great which is distracting at the beginning but I got used to it. There may be other extensions, I only looked at this one.
When I selected the entire chapter, it started reading. In a nice surprise, I would edit as I went and it kept reading. This allowed me to make quick fixes during the read through.
Anyone else doing text to speech as a regular part of their process? What tools are you using?
