At Eye to Eye, we believe in accommodating different learning styles and teaching skills for life. Here is how to have our site (and any other website) read to you.

IF YOU’RE ON A MAC 

Mac OS X includes a cool Text to Speech function that makes the Mac speak selected text in text-based files - including web pages, email messages, spreadsheets, calendar entries, PDFs, text documents, Finder windows, and even iTunes.

To set up the Speech function:

  • Go to “System Preferences”
  • Click on “Speech”
  • Click “Text to Speech”
  • Select the System Voice and Speaking Rate you prefer
  • Select the “Speak selected text when the key is pressed” and select a sequence that works for you (example Control+S)

You’re done! Now when you’re viewing any website, word document, etc. you just need to highlight the text you want to have spoken and hit the sequence you selected to have it read to you.
