Hi Dan,

Adobe's "Read Out Loud" feature is configured the same way on the Mac as it is in Windows. Getting there is slightly different though. In Windows select Edit > Preferences, then select "Reading" from the list of Categories. On a Mac, select "Adobe Reader" > Preferences, then select "Reading" from the list of Categories. In both versions, once you're in Reading Preferences, you can change the volume, voice, pitch, and speed.

Greetings -

Not having a Mac in our department, I am looking for aedvice in answering a student's question - how can he change the voices and speed in Adobe Reader on the Mac?

Any tips would be most welcome!
