Save text as an audio file

  • Save to Audio

ClaroRead can save text as an audio file so that you can listen to it later. For example, you might have notes from a lecture that you want to listen to on your phone while you’re on your way to college.

To save text as an audio file:

  1. Display the text that you want to save. 
  2. Depending on the application you are using, you may need to select the text or copy it to the clipboard. If you’re using Word or PowerPoint, ClaroRead will save your entire document if nothing is selected. If you’re using Adobe Acrobat, ClaroRead will save the currently displayed page. For most other applications, you need to copy your text to the clipboard.
  3. Click the Save button on the ClaroRead toolbar. 
  4. In the Save As window that appears, enter a location, name, and file format for the audio file, and then click Save. MP3 is the most commonly used format.
  5. ClaroRead saves your text to the specified audio file and shows a progress bar. Saving long documents to audio may take some time.

Note that the text is read out using your standard voice, speed, and so on, as configured in ClaroRead’s Speech settings.
