Any progress or suggestions for text reading software for the sciences? I have a PhD candidate with eye fatigue and dizziness due to nystagmus and vision therapy aftermath. I am thinking that we may be best having the articles she needs for her prelims read out loud by another student, for accuracy. I will enlarge her text on the paper document, for one, as she cannot look at the computer screen too long, but she does listen to the text out loud when her eyes are worse so she can at least make some progress. Ideas?
