Yes, Lexie reads ANY text to you with text to speech (TTS). Additional advantages are the tools that provide support for reading practice or simply to easier follow the text.
Text to Speech options you can set in Lexie are:
Here are some recipes for all needs and tastes on how to best utilize TTS features.
With Lexie read all your texts in different formats - whether you’re using e-books, PDFs, Word docs, photos of the textbook pages or web. Or anything else.
If you’re adding something as a book (i.e. EPUB or Word doc) or using the Lexie libraries it is quite simple. Select a book from the list, turn on the TTS, set it up and select the first word where you want Lexie to start reading. Relax and read with your ears :)
If you need to make edits to the text (like when you want to use photos from textbooks) Lexie offers a simple text editor. You add photos as a document, and edit and arrange it as you need it. TTS is not available in the text editor, so you just need to convert the document to a book. And voila, you’re ready to go.
I’m sure the ability to turn the sound on/off has caught your eye. The reason we’ve enabled that is to help you practice your reading muscle.
You can practice reading in several ways:
While practicing reading, you can combine TTS with other tools. One-click syllabication will help you keep a better reading rhythm.
TTS feature is available in Lexie within monthly or yearly subscription. There are no limits to the number of words or books you can read using TTS in a month.
