    Any PDF READERS out here? Or can I use Espeak???

    Hey there,
    I was just curious if anyone knew of ANY program that will actually READ (out loud) a PDF file... I've heard that there are a few programs out there and that thy're hard to find so I wanted to know if it's a myth or if anyone can back this up.
    It'd be immensely practical if I could find, download, and install one for free...
    Loneliness is never more cruel than when it is felt in close propinquity with someone who has ceased to communicate.

    No personal experience, but here is a link with potential

    a couple of workarounds (using Chrome and PDFViewer) are mentioned - hope it helps.

    The one I tried was from post 10.
