ZoomText Mac – Now With Speech!

February 18, 2014

We are thrilled to announce that ZoomText Mac now includes several speech features! Users can enjoy Focus Echo, Mouse Echo and a great reading tool called WebReader. Here’s a brief recap of each of these new features:

Focus Echo: Text information from the current active control, text fields, menu items, or buttons will now be automatically read aloud.

Mouse Echo: Text information that’s underneath the mouse pointer can also be read aloud; it will speak the entire item name, or if you’re over a block of text, it will read the entire paragraph. A great spot reading tool!

WebReader: A reading tool that allows you to extract just the important information from a busy webpage. It will also read all the text in an application window (for instance, an entire email message), or the text in your clipboard.
