Text to Speech (TTS)

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.

Options for TTS

Three options are available in the Settings / Readaloud menu:

  • Simplified view auto scrolls text with focus by paragraphe.
  • Skippability does not display auxiliary contents authored as footnotes, endnotes, pagebreaks and asides.
  • Split text focuses phrase by phrase
