Program To Read On PC

  [email protected]© 19:08 28 Mar 2011

My Grandad is getting very short sighted but likes to get emails etc from loved ones etc. He is not able to read them now, is there a free progam that will read e-mails, word docs, presentations or anything he may recieve aloud as audio?

I have just briefly tried the Windows 7 Narrator which can be accessed via Control Panel, Ease of Access. It does read emails, even if the voice is a bit robotic. Worth a try if your Granddad has Win 7.
