🔊 How to use Read Aloud

If the book you're reading has the Read Aloud tool, here's a tutorial for you!

Updated over a week ago

Our mission is to make learning accessible to all, so we're working on making Read Aloud available on as many of the most-read books on Perlego as possible! We hope that having the book read aloud will make the information in these books more accessible to as many of you as possible.

How can I use the Read Aloud tool?

If the book you are reading has audio available, you will see a button in the left toolbar with the Read Aloud symbol.

When you click on the Read Aloud button, it will open the Read Aloud panel. From this panel, you can start the tool reading aloud for you by clicking the "Play" button. You should then hear the audio playback. The tool will read aloud the text paragraph-by-paragraph until it reaches the end of the chapter or until you press pause or stop in the panel.

When the Read Aloud tool is active and you can hear audio playback, you can pause the audio by clicking the "Pause" button. Once paused, you can resume audio playback by clicking the play button again and the audio will start from the point you paused.

If you want to listen to a different section from the one you're currently listening to, click the "Stop" button. This will reset the Read Aloud tool and stop the audio playback for the current section. Scroll to the section of the book you would like to be read aloud and click the play button again.

To skip to the next or go back to the previous paragraph, you can click the "Next" or "Previous" buttons.

You can change the speed at which the text is read aloud. Click the speed control button in the Read Aloud panel and adjust the slider to either slow down or speed up the audio playback to your preferred speed.

What if I find a problem with the Read Aloud tool?

If the Read Aloud tool is not behaving as it should on a book that you are reading, please reach out to our Customer Support Team and they will help investigate the potential issues and get back to you at the soonest. You can reach them via email on [email protected], or message them from Perlego.
