We used to encourage the use of NaturalReader, but a couple of years ago, many “commercials” started popping up. We now encourage the use of Balabolka and haven’t had any complaints (I use this myself quite often).

Natural Reader is another software and/or app that would allow him to type and have the text read aloud. There is a free, downloadable version and an educational version (cost effective). If he uses a Bluetooth speaker, he can adjust the volume loud enough for the entire class to hear.

Do you have access to Read&Write? If so, you could try using the Speak As I Type feature, set to sentence. Then he could type a sentence and R&W would speak it out loud. Just one thought off the top of my head.

An instructor of ours has had an unexpected health event that will leave him without a voice for a while. We are starting to investigate some text to speech readers that he can use in his classroom to communicate with his students. I am turning to the experts for any suggestions.
Your comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks!
