I have used Microsoft Word’s “Speak” feature coupled with Multilingual TTS
to accomplish this with other languages. Russian is an option. The only
downside that I have noticed is that using this method with other languages
can cause the spell check feature in Word to default to other languages
when you don’t intend it to.

Here are the technical instructions that your IT department would need to
accomplish this.

*Subject:* [Athen] Text-to-Speech Software that Reads Russian

Hello all,

We recently had a student request alternative formats for several Russian
language classes. Our text-to-speech software reads English, Spanish,
French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Finnish, but not Russian.

Do any of you know of a text-to-speech or screen-reading software
(preferably the former) that can recognize and read text aloud in Russian?

Thank you for any recommendations!
