Tip: Microsoft Word 2019 now has read aloud.

Recommended Posts

So, this is a feature that I've really been looking for in a text editor.

It really improves your ability to edit content because if you read it your own writing, you have a tendency to be blind to your own grammar errors.

I find that it's a lot easier to fix grammar mistakes, if you listen to the words being spoken back to you.

The feature is hidden away under the review ribbon.

There are obviously other solutions, but I think it's really nice that it's built right into Microsoft word now.

Problem I have with all this Read Aloud schwango is how it never sounds too zackly like Moi.

I tried Dragon Natchrlly Speakin' a while back — an it made evrythin' I said sound like frickin' gibberish.

My solootion?

Call Granma over.

She read so sweet when you were a kid, so why should automation consign her to a lonesum misery existence filled only with tryin' to dig out her teeth from behind the sofa with a spatula?

Tellya, fix Granma up with sherry, mebbe a pipe fulla tobacco smells like burned cardigans, an' she will read most anythin' out loud — even porno.

"I got plenty empty nests to fill — so for sure I can distinguish my colons from my semicolons!"

Seems to me it was working perfectly.
