As a user you don’t have to download anything. You simply click the listen button and the reading starts automatically.
It is also possible to have only a selected part of the text read out loud to you. Just make a selection of the text, click on the
listen button, and the reading starts automatically.
This is what the listen button looks like on this website:
When you click the listen button, a control panel appears (see image below) and ReadSpeaker automatically starts reading
the text of the website out loud.
- Adjust the volume
- Pause the reading
- Stop the reading
- Restart the reading
- Choose "No sound?" if your browser does not support flash.
If you click on the flash player it will be in focus so that you can control it with the keyboard:
- Play/pause: Space bar
- Stop: Esc key
- Increase volume: Up arrow or the + key of the numeric keypad
- Lower Volume: Down arrow or the – key of the numeric keypad
- Fast forward: Right arrow
