What is Ginger Text Reader?
Ginger Text Reader is a premium product that reads your text back to you in a human voice. It is truly lifelike, easy to use, and enables learners of English as a second language to practice proper pronunciation.
Ginger’s Text Reader allows you to listen to words, sentences or documents in an authentic UK or US accent. First, make sure your computer’s sound is working properly. Then, choose between two options:
- Listen to words/sentences
Ginger allows you to listen to specific words, entire sentences, and their corrections directly from the Gizmo. To listen, highlight the sentence you’d like to hear and then click either the Rephraser or Grammar Checker icon that appears within the Gizmo. Click the speaker next to either the original text or the corrected text to hear the way it should sound. Alternatively, you can highlight the text and click F2 to automatically send it to the Gizmo.
- Listen to an entire text/document
To listen to your whole text, click the “Speaker” icon in the Ginger Gadget. Ginger will read the text from the location of the cursor until the end of the text. To stop the reading, either click anywhere in the document or press click the “Stop” button in the Ginger Gadget.
