Tais Takehara's insight:

If there is something that really drives me nut is to waste paper. Furthermore I don't, I definitely don't get on well with my printer. Here is a great solution if you have a tablet-centered meeting.

NaturalReader is a text to speech program that converts any written text into spoken words. In other words, it allows you to listen to text instead of reading the screen!
Tais Takehara's insight:

A really brilliant tool to study English. If you like to read and think it will help your learning more and more, you are right! However, have you thougt that you can maximise this practice? How? Converting your texts to speech will enable you to know the words pronunciation, you don't have to look for all the words in a dictionary and check its phonology or checking out an online dictionary, and neither spend time just reading. You can take advantages of listening while walking, for example.
