Text to Speech (TTS)
readaloudparameter does not affect TTS reading as expected. This is fixed in 2.4 alpha continuous test build and will be shipped in 2.4 release.
Text-to-speech is launched using the speaker button in the middle of the toolbar, or by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + 2.
Play and pause can be controlled with the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + 2.
The playback position can be moved with Ctrl + 1 and Ctrl + 3 for previous and next respectively.
A speed control is available when read aloud is selected, with a range from x0.5 to x2.
The current sentence is highlighted in light yellow, and each word spoken is underlined in orange.
An alternative (simplified) view of the publication is provided through options available in the
Settings / Readaloudmenu.
