Document and Selection Reader for Mac OS

GhostReader™ is a document and selection reader often used by people with dyslexia, by students for language learning and by people who prefer to listen to text rather than read it. GhostReader can read Text, Word, HTML, PDF and RTF documents (plus in Leopard: DOCX and ODT documents) and selected text in almost any application.

For later playback, GhostReader can convert text to audio files and to iTunes tracks ready for play on iPad, iPhone or iPod touch devices.

GhostReader includes Infovox iVox voice credits that can be redeemed for individual Infovox iVox voices in any language. Additional Infovox iVox voice credits can be purchased separately to acquire even more voices and to add additional computers.
