PC users who turn to the Text to Speech software TextAloud for listening to text can now get dynamic how-to video tips, as well! Text to Speech leader NextUp.com has announced the launch of its own YouTube Channel, which features a growing assortment of helpful video tutorials on using TextAloud, NextUp.com's most popular software title.

"It enables us to share helpful video tutorials on an ongoing basis, while maintaining the opportunity for feedback and communication with those who use our software firsthand."
Priced from $29.95, TextAloud enables users to listen to their reading via PC, or by exporting their reading to spoken audio files for listening on most popular portable devices, from MP3 players to iPods (R), iPhones (R), and beyond. As the first instructional YouTube videos demonstrate, TextAloud is easy and flexible, and seamlessly works to help PC users listen to their reading from most text and document formats, from Microsoft Word (R), to ASCII, web or e-mail text, PDF documents and more. With TextAloud, users can accomplish a wide variety of tasks, from listening to reading for entertainment, to proofing or studying by ear, and more.
NextUp.com's YouTube Video Channel is located at http://www.youtube.com/user/NextUpcom. The first videos to appear on the channel demonstrate how to easily accomplish some of TextAloud's most popular tasks, from "Listening to PDF Documents with TextAloud," to "Listening to Word Documents with TextAloud," or tips on "Using TextAloud's Pronunciation Editor." The Channel also offers an overview of TextAloud's uses for users with visual or learning and reading disabilities, as well.
"The launch of our YouTube channel helps us to continue our mission at NextUp.com to help users 'listen and learn anywhere," adds Ellis, "as well as helping us to bring new, affordable and highly useful Text to Speech technologies and applications to users worldwide."
NextUp.com has several additional videos in the works now, and plans to launch additional videos to the channel on a regular basis in the months to come.
