We, at Florida State University, use the Read & Write Gold software sold by Texthelp. We offer this to all students across campus for both PC and Mac users. It has a PDF ReadAloud tool that includes a point and click feature which is real nice because it lets you control the area of the PDF document you want read.

We are looking into making software available to Alt Formats students that will read PDFs (in the event they are not already using a screen
reader) available for both Mac and PC. I've talked to some of you individually, but if you can weigh in on what you are using I'd appreciate it! Right now we show the students NaturalReaders and/or the reader in Adobe.
