  • Do my users have to download anything to get Speak This Page to work?

    No, all the user needs is a device with a web browser that has the ability to play back MP3 audio. The user simply highlight the content that they wish to be spoken or simply hover over the area with the mouse.

  • Does Speak This Page work on HTTPS sites and password-protected sites?

    Yes, Speak This Page can be set up to speech-enable secure sites and password-protected sites.

  • I use a Content Management System (CMS). Can Speak This Page be easily integrated into our CMS?

    Our customers work with dozens of different content management systems and have never encountered any particular problems integrating our code within their templates. For certain content management systems, we have developed plugins to further facilitate implementation.

  • How many languages can I have my website read in?

    To date, Speak This Page can speech-enable websites and mobile apps in 20 Languages and many accents. We also have several female and male voices for most of the 20+ languages. The underlying text of your website or mobile app must be in the language that you want to have read.

  • What happens if some of my content is not pronounced correctly?

    We can create customized dictionaries that take into account words that are specific to your industry jargon that are not well read. For example, this sometimes happens with acronyms and abbreviations. We can then work on your customized dictionary to have your words pronounced correctly.

  • Where do you suggest we put the Listen button?

    We recommend that you place the Speak This Page button close to the heading of the content that you want read so that there is an immediate mental link between the content and the Listen button.

  • Do we have to use the Speak This Page Listen button?

    For usability and awareness, we’ve introduced a unified icon to identify that a website is equipped with Speak This Page’s web-reading service. When website visitors see this icon, they learn what happens if the icon is clicked; the page will be read out loud to them. We propose a variety of buttons in the different languages we support and with many color and size options. Of course, you can also design and use your own button if ours doesn’t fit in with the look and feel of your site.

  • Can Speak This Page be used to speech-enable our PDF files?

    Yes, Speak This Page allows a user to listen to PDFs, Word documents, and a variety of other document formats. It converts these documents into a web-readable format, while preserving the original layout, so that they can be viewed in all types of browsers and devices in which they otherwise wouldn’t be able to do so.

  • Does Speak This Page work on my mobile device?

    Speak This Page provides maximum access not only from PCs but also from smartphones, including BlackBerry and Android powered phones, MP3 playing devices, PDAs, video game consoles, interactive internet TVs, and internet booths and kiosks.
