Editors' Review

+
Though not as soothing as Mom reading you a bedtime story, this application is reliable. It could, however, improve with a few more customizing options. E-Text Reader's interface resembles a text editor, thus making it very intuitive and easy to use, if not a bit out of date. To have a text read, simply cut-and-paste a document into the application window or open a file (either plain text, DOC, or even HTML). It's important to make sure the cursor is at the point you want the reader to begin. With one click (the Read button has a cute green smiley face on it) the program begins to read the text in one of three standard voices. A video tutorial is included, but we didn't think it necessary given the relative ease of using the program. Though the download is a large one (25MB), the fact that it's freeware puts any weighty program issues quickly to rest. Overall, E-Text Reader is a reliable, efficient program at a great price (none!).

"Newer programs have passed it by."

January 04, 2013  |  By Puppy_Chow

 |  Version: E Text Reader IGT 5.1

Pros

+ Intuitive user interface.
+ Adequate integration with Word

Cons

+ Now considered trial version, freezes the program for 15 seconds and nags you to pay upwards of $50 for what others offer for free.
+ Voices randomly change speed and tone.
+ Seems as though it has to be your "active window" to run in Win7, making it a tad more difficult to edit in MSWord while you listen.

Summary

Newer programs are truly free and offer the same (or better) functionality.

"Very solid for free, better than many free & shareware"

January 24, 2010  |  By Dixieflatline34u5

 |  Version: E Text Reader IGT 5.1

Pros

* Versatile, stable
* 30+ voices, + speed/pitch control
* highlights & rich text format tools (it's a word processor)
* bookmarks, starts where you left off, highlights as it reads
* easy, simple, performance, no suprises
* usable, fast, no hitches

Cons

* you can only save text files and not wav or mp3's. :(
* translations limited in free version

Summary

All in all very good, better than a lot of the little free text-to-voice programs or limited shareware. No nag screens, etc

Looking for a sound file recording though.
