Hi forum,

 

Is there any built-in program in Win7 which can self-read an article with different language selection ?  I would like to use it to read some articles in a good machine voice.

 

Thanks.

Yes, there is a text to speech application called Narrator.

 

Click on the start orb, type in narrator in the search programs and files box.  It will appear in Programs above, right click on narrator and click on Run as administrator.

 

Have fun. :thumbup2:

Only thing about Narrator is there is no option of changing the language. If you decide to go with this option here is a good article with some useful shortcuts.
