Natural Reader - text to speech on-line

Natural Reader - text to speech on-line | technologies |
Free text to speech online app with natural voices, convert text to audio and mp3, for personal and commercial use
John Dalziel's insight:
Many Learning Providers are looking for FREE text to speech (TTS) technology web tools that do not require downloading software and can be used on Chromebooks, laptops or computers. 
TTS technology is helpful for English Language Learners (ELL), learners who struggle with dyslexia and can be used by all learners to...
  - assist them with reading,
  - assist them with their own writing and, with an upgrade...
  - create mp3 audio files, 
Natural Reader - - is an on-line application that supports pdf, txt, doc, docx, rtf and epub files. 
This one stands out because the spoken speech sounds so natural (something that is hard to get with artificial speech). 
The free version of Natural Reader will give users 20 minutes with premium voices per day. 
Users can select...
  - their preferred "reader Voice", from the drop down menu and/or 
  - the speed at which the text is read. 
Has to be worth a closer look... or should that be listen?
