Clemmons, NC (PRWEB) November 7, 2005
Text-to-Speech software leader NextUp.com (http://www.NextUp.com) has released version 2.068 of its popular TextAloud software. This upgrade includes a new Firefox Browser Plugin which adds a TextAloud toolbar to the popular web browser, allowing users to listen to web pages read aloud on their computer. Also, users can easily convert text from web news and web based emails to audio files for portable listening. This addition compliments the Outlook and Internet Explorer toolbars also available with TextAloud to make audio browsing of the internet even easier.
“The Firefox browser has quickly become a popular alternative to Internet Explorer,” noted Ken White, CEO of NextUp.com. “A flurry of requests from TextAloud users led us to develop this Firefox toolbar to further enhance our customers’ browsing experience through spoken audio”.
TextAloud is a full-featured Text-to-Speech tool offering direct support for Word, PDF and HTML formats, as well as advanced pronunciation tools, an Internet Explorer Plug-In for easy listening of favorite web pages – and more.
Hailed by critics and users alike, TextAloud is priced at just $29.95, and is compatible with systems using Windows® 98, NT, 2000 and XP. The program is available for fast, safe and secure purchase via http://www.NextUp.com. NextUp.com also offers TextAloud with optional premium voices from AT&T Natural Voicesâ, Cepstralâ, and NeoSpeechâ for the most natural-sounding computer speech anywhere.
