Try This Tool To Turn PDF To Speech

Do you wish to convert a PDF file into a fully prepared speech? As a result, you should absolutely give this free online reader a shot.

We occasionally have to read long, repetitive reports or studies for job or universities, yet we can’t read for another minute or our brains would turn to mush. Perhaps you see the benefits of listening to your material while reading it, but finding it difficult to read aloud is a challenge.

While studying is useful, the stress of overstudying can result in physical symptoms like headaches or stomach troubles, as well as long-term health issues. This is why taking a break and perhaps going for a walk is so important, but what can you do if you still have to study? Pay attention to what’s written in the book!

Listening to a book rather than reading it has a number of advantages:

  • Enhances critical listening skills.
  • The ability to focus and pay attention has improved.
  • Improves memory.
  • Improves critical thinking and comprehension skills.
  • Those with vision impairments and reading difficulties will benefit from this product (dyslexia, etc).

For this and many other reasons, using a free online reader could be your savior. It’s an application that allows you to listen to the text you’ve written. This is done via a text-to-speech (TTS) tool, which is software that uses assistive technology to transform any text into audio.

Before using TTS, make sure it provides the most authentic voices; otherwise, you’ll end up sounding more like a robot than a human. Furthermore, not every text-to-speech software accepts PDFs. But don’t be concerned! Because there is a free online reader called Woord that might meet your needs.

Why Woord?

Woord is a free online TTS with a variety of interesting features. It’s available in over 50 languages, including many English dialects, Portuguese, and Spanish. It also lets you choose whether you want a male, female, or gender-neutral voice. 

All of these features, as well as all of the languages, are available on the free plan, allowing you to get a feel for the service before investing in the premium version. The free edition includes up to 20.000 characters each month, premium voices, a chrome plugin, an SSML editor, and MP3 download. The voices in this software are real, and you may modify their speed and format.

Woord can be used to help the blind and visually impaired consume digital information like eBooks and newspapers, but it can also be used in a range of devices like set-top boxes, smartwatches, tablets, and smartphones, as previously mentioned.

Woord can also be used in telephone applications such as IVR systems (Interactive Voice Response). Quiz games, animations, avatars, and narration production are some of the most prominent use-cases for cloud-based TTS solutions like Woord.

How to use it?

1. Visit www.getwoord.com and select “Online reader,” or install the Chrome extension.

2. Paste the book or browse for a document to read on the whiteboard, then select the gender, language, speed, and format.

3. Once you’ve finished, click ‘Speak It’ to double-check that everything is in order.

4. When you’re happy with the results, save them to your computer.

Take use of the Woord Chrome Extension.
