ClaroRead SE for PC and Mac allows most web pages to be spoken back easily in the web browser. To do so, load up the web page that is required to be spoken back and open ClaroRead SE. If the green play button is pressed the web page will be spoken from "top to bottom" in an order that is related to the way the web page is built. By clicking the mouse at the beginning of the web page article a "virtual cursor" will appear. Pressing the green Play Button will start the read back, and the sentence will highlight in red. ClaroRead SE will carry on reading the web page until the Stop button is pressed.
An alternate way of making hyperlinks and text in web pages speak is to just "hover the mouse" over the text. If there is any difficulty reading back a web page, simply select the text with the mouse and press the Play button. ClaroRead SE will read anything that is selected with the mouse.
Making Other Computer Programs Speak

To not have the text read back when it is select, turn it off from within the Advanced Speech Settings.
