It seems that more and more documents are crossing my desk via Adobe PDF. This is great as it means less printing (SAVE THE TREES!). However it often means a lot of reading on the computer. Sometimes it is nice to have these documents read to me while I am doing other tasks. Check out Adobe Read Aloud. You already have it if you have Adobe Reader on your computer. Simply open the adobe document and go to View and Select Read Aloud. Then select either Read to the End of the Document or Read this Page. It installs the reader engine and off it goes. By going to the Adobe Preferences you can change the voice, speed and a few other options. It is a great way to read books, papers and articles while you are doing other things. Enjoy Adobe Read Aloud.
