Web-page TTS (text to speech) screen reader, that does not require cutting and pasting sentences or entire page sections
Pericles benefits people with disabilities, eye fatigue or those who want to increase their productivity. It helps you read the news, scientific articles, and many other text resources.
Built with a varied range of voices for Mac, and a bit more limited for Windows, the app is free. So, enjoy your meal or do your chores while Pericles does the reading.
After you’ve reached your favorite article, use Auto-scan - this feature will attempt to identify the main content for you, and parse each paragraph into an audio section. More Info »
If the previous fails, you can always choose Select Area, then hover over the page and target the desired box.
If your study or work material is on a portable document format, be relieved! Just browse any file from your computer via the Upload PDF feature - once the content has loaded a popup will reveal it’s contents!
Otherwise select the text, right-click and you should find “Pericles: Text to speech”, a newly added context item.
