View Full Version : Adobe Reader TTS

December 7th, 2006, 03:32 PM
I have installed acroread, festival & libgnome-speech from the edgy distribution. The text-to-speech services work fine except for in Adobe Reader. What else must be done to enable the "Read Out Loud" feature of Adobe Reader? Or is there another program that will read pdf files without needing to manually select the range with the cursor?

According to this: http://lwn.net/Articles/198356/ Orca should 'just work' with the 'fixed' version of Acrobat, whatever that is. If we don't ship the accessibility enabled version we should. I'll ask about it on the Orca mailing list.

This now is working in Ubuntu 7.04. In fact, with 7.04 almost everything I need to have working in Linux is now functional. Scanner was recognized immediately. Cannot get xinerama to work with my dual displays without it causing X11 to crash but it works when set as two separate screens. Wine works with a few more of my Windows programs. I soon won't need Windows at all. http://ubuntuforums.org/images/smilies/icon_biggrin.gif
