Sometimes I am too spaced out to read. Or maybe it's only some kind off visual problem and weird feeling in head problem, because during those times I find I can still articulate and listen. I want to be able to read more often, so I downloaded a trial version of IVONO text to speech software. Obviously, this only works with electronic reading, not real books. Anyway, so far it seems to help. It works better if I can look at the text while I'm listening to the software read, even if I'm having trouble focusing. It seems that two senses work better than one. But it's more exhausting. So I try to trade off. And I don't do it for long periods. I would love to hear from anyone else who is using text to speech software.
