Making your computer talk

Introduction

You can make your computer talk in a number of ways, which can be a valuable facility for people who have difficulties with reading, for someone who can't see very well or at all, and for those who need to give their eyes a rest. These guides explain how to use the in-built speech function in your operating system (Windows, Mac or Linux). There are also third-party screen-readers and text-to-speech software applications available.
