I’ve written about a free text-to-speech (Balabolka day 4) and how it’s incorporated into MyStudyBar (also free Day 3). I’ve written about a commercial one (ReadWriteGold day 9). Now it’s the turn of Claroreadplus – another paid for toolbar.
The choice between this and ReadWrite is mainly preference (I think ReadWrite is a little more intuitive).
Claroread’s features include:
Text-to-speech – will read documents, email and Internet
Reads 30 languages
Word prediction (including high frequency words, phonetic and learns subject specific
Spellcheck including homophones
Dictionary and thesaurus
A listen later option to read text into an audio file
Scanning OCR function
Includes ClaroIdeas – mind mapping, a ScreenRuler and ClaroCapture – captures images and text from web pages and documents for references
Claro offer a 15 free trial
