How to use the ReadSpeaker listening solution

ReadSpeaker reads the text of the website aloud


It helps you if you have trouble reading online text. By having the text read aloud, you can understand the information on the website more easily. This makes the content more accessible and the website more enjoyable to visit. As a user, you have nothing to download. If you select a portion of the text, a listen pop-up button will automatically be displayed next to the mouse pointer, allowing you to quickly access the play function for the selected text.

How does it work?

To listen to the main content

Just click the Listen button to listen to the content of the web page

An audio player appears (see image below) and ReadSpeaker starts to read the text of the web page aloud.

In the audio player you can:

  • Pause / restart playback
  • Stop reading
  • Use the progress bar to navigate the audio
  • Adjust the volume
  • Click on the settings icon to customize the service
  • Click on the download icon to download the audio file
  • Close the reader

You can use tab / maj + tab to navigate within the audio player and press enter to activate a particular button or link.


Listen to the selected text

You can select a portion of the text you want to listen to and click the Listen as pop-up button that appears next to the mouse pointer. When you click the Listen to pop-up button, an audio player appears (see image below) and ReadSpeaker starts reading the text you selected.



In the settings menu you can:

  • Choose if you want to have the text highlighted during playback
  • Choose to have the text highlighted by word and sentence, by sentence only, or by word only
  • Choose the style and colors of highlighting
  • Choose whether to display the current phrase at the bottom of the page, with a larger font and the highlighted highlight text
  • Choose a slow, medium or fast playback speed
  • Choose if you want the page to scroll automatically to follow the highlighted text
  • Choose whether the Listen to Pop button is displayed when the text is selected
  • Restore all parameters to their original values

You can also listen to the settings by clicking the play button located at the top right of the settings menu.
