Natural Reader is a free software that gives you text to speech functions with natural sounding voices.  No more robotic voice.  An essential tool for those with dyslexia and other reading difficulties.  Sit back, relax and let Natural reader read to you.

If you have a long reading list with your courses, you can upload your eBooks, e-textbooks or class notes and listen and review the information while commuting to class or just walking from class to class. Bookmark pages for easy access for studying. Connects to Dropbox, OneDrive or Google Drive accounts easily. Adjust the speed and background color to your preferences.

  • It’s smart, with automatic text detection to read only relevant text from webpages. It will help with avoiding ads and menu text.
  • It helps you focus on what you are reading.
  • Supports PDF, txt, doc(x), ppt(x), pages and epub files.
  • Sync to your mobile device to listen anywhere.
  • Chrome Extension that lets you listen to any Browser content such as webpages, Google docs, eBooks and e-learning materials.
