Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Aug 23, 2019

Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

Looking for a way to have your PDF or other document text read aloud? NaturalReader is a “powerful text-to-speech tool” that allows you to upload text or files directly on their website. The tool then converts the text into an audio file so you can have it read aloud!

One of the tool’s unique features is the Dyslexic Font option, which transforms the text into a more dyslexia-friendly font. Users also have the option to customize how fast the text is read, as well as what voice they’d like it to be read in.

While you can use the tool for free, there is a premium paid version available with a few more cool features. Visit to learn more!
