PDF Read Entire Documents Out Loud Software uses the Text-to-Speech system which allows you to read text aloud from PDF files. The process is simple, you just have to open a PDF file from the Graphic User Interface. Only the text which is recognized will be automatically imported to the text box right at the center of the GUI. After this, you just have to press the Start Reading button to listen to the text.
You can increase or decrease the volume, change the speed of speech - this can be done before or during the playback - and change the voice used for the speech (this option is limited to the voices previously installed on your computer). The punctuation marks on the text will denote a pause on the reading.
One important aspect to bring the attention to is that the PDF files may contain text, vector graphics, raster graphics, and bitmap images; but if the PDF's text is saved as image it won't be imported and hence the program won't be able to read it. Also the program doesn't support password-protected PDF files.
