CNET Editors\' review by: CNET Staff on February 27, 2009 Despite a few small gripes, this text-to-speech converter stands as a decent option. TextSpeech Pro\'s interface is somewhat reminiscent of a browser, with a URL field prominently displayed below the various control icons. When you open a Web page, a Word document, or a PDF file, the application will display its contents in a large preview pane. You select what text you\'d like read aloud by simply highlighting it, though we wished you could skip paragraphs or sections via hot keys. The app lets you choose from among five male or female voices, but none of them sound particularly human. You can adjust the speech speed and volume, and you even can save documents as WAV files in a variety of audio qualities. TextSpeech Pro also can directly access Microsoft Outlook to read you your e-mail, handy for busy folks who might need to get messages while driving or traveling. The program\'s performance was mostly good, although we should note it wouldn\'t read text from a Flash-based site. We would prefer a longer trial period than just a week, but this utility still has enough positives to make it worth downloading, especially for persons with poor eyesight.
