Using Read Out Loud in Adobe Acrobat Reader

Let Adobe Acrobat read a PDF for you through the "Read Out Loud" tool. This is a built-in accessibility feature that does not require a screen reader. It is also beneficial when English (especially Academic English) isn't our strong suit, we need a screen break, or we need to fold laundry without sacrificing reading time. Ensure you have downloaded and activated your institutional subscription (available to SUA faculty, students, and staff) through IT. Select the hyperlinked section header or follow this link to step-by-step instructions on activating the feature.
