Text-to-speech is a HUGE focus for RedShelf's development team. It's the very next feature to be implemented in our new platform.
Currently, screen reading software runs a wide gamut in terms of HTML-5, ePub and PDF compatibility. As we work to reach an industry standard for these protocols, we understand users might need more immediate solutions.
There are options based on which version of our eBook that you are using. It's either version 5 or version 6. The easiest way to tell which version your eBook is running is by checking the color of the loading dots when you initially open your eBook (Please refer below):
If you're eBook is running version 5, we recommend a Google Chrome add-on that works as a free alternative to expensive screen reader programs called Read Write. It can be found through the chrome web store.
Once Read Write is added to Chrome, you will see a purple puzzle-piece icon on the top-right section of your web browser (image below):
Once you click that purple icon, you a bar will populate at the bottom of your browser (image below):
The play button will be the fifth icon in and once activated, the app will read the words on the page and in your eBook.
If your eBook is running version 6, there is an experimental reading feature that can be found by clicking the four-bar menu button in the top left of the page, clicking "Experimental Features," and then toggling the Narrator on! Image:
