I've used Ghost Reader.... for text reading only, and for students who'd like to be able to quickly create iTunes tracks, it's a good deal. Voices are quite nice, actually. Obviously, not as full-featured as Kurzweil, but for less than $30, it's a nice little app.

Hi Eileen,

At the beginning of February Ryan Collier brought up Ghost Reader on the listserv. I haven't tried it out yet, but from what he said and the website, it sounds similar to TextAloud or Read Please. And cost is cheaper than Kurzweil for students who are on tight budgets.

Hi all,
What screen reader is best for a mac when the student with a learning
disability uses it only for text reading?
