Both Adobe Acrobat and Adobe Reader offer Read Out Loud. This tool allows you to listen to your PDF documents one section, page, or document at a time.
To activate Read Out Loud:
- Go to View
- Choose Read Out Loud
- Activate Read Out Loud
- Go back to View
- Choose Read Out Loud again
- Choose Read This Page Only or Read to End of Document (there are pause and stop options available)
Note: If you follow steps 1-3, you also have the option to click on one area at a time. This may be useful if you’d like to navigate one sentence or paragraph at a time.
If you prefer keyboard shortcuts, you may use Control + Shift + Y to activate Read Out Loud.
