As its name suggests, Clip Reader implements a text-to-speech system for your clipboard, reading out loud any text that is copied in Windows. This comes in handy in various circumstances, such as when you want to stay up to date to the latest online news, check your inbox, study for exams or read an ebook.
Straightforward usage and plain looks
Simplicity is one of the main characteristics of this application and therefore, using it shouldn’t pose any problems to its users, regardless of their previous interactions with a computer.
The main interface only displays a static picture, encasing all the options within simple menus. The application might as well work exclusively via the system tray and there would be no difference.
Repeats a previously read English text
You start by choosing the Microsoft voice you want Clip Reader to use. At the moment, the application only comprises three such voices, namely David, Hazel and Zira, all for English reading. Therefore, Clip Reader cannot recognize texts in another language than English.
There is a repeat function that instructs the program to read a text again and again, until the ‘Repeat’ window is closed. This is really useful in case you want to memorize it.
Reads clipboard content out loud
Clip Reader speaks the clipboard text content out loud using either a male or a female voice. It’s enough to copy a text piece from a web page or a document and the application starts reading it instantly. If you perform multiple copy operations, it finishes reading the first text and then automatically switches to the next piece you sent to the clipboard.
On the downside, only the English language is supported. Also, there is no option for stopping reading and if you try to close the application while it reads a text, it usually refuses to respond, which might result in a crash.
Clip Reader is a software program that reads text aloud instantly from the clipboard just by selecting it. Great for reading email, online news, reviewing, documents, cram for exams and tests with repeat option.
Choose from different voice styles, male or female voice. Just highlight text from any web page or document and the the program starts reading the text instantly. Very easy to use with no set up required makes this program a pleasure to use. Reads entire pages of text just by highlighting and copying the text. Fun and easy program to use.
