The ABTA website is now enhanced with text-to-speech functionality from ReadSpeaker.

The ReadSpeaker services add another dimension to www.abta.org. It allows you to hear content instead of just seeing it. Whether you have difficulty reading on a computer screen or would simply prefer to listen to content being read to you, ReadSpeaker will help you take in all that our website has to offer.


To use the ReadSpeaker service, simply look for the “Listen” icon at the top of the page. Click the orange arrow, sit back, and let ReadSpeaker do the rest.

To adjust the volume, click on the white speaker icon. Is the text being read too fast? Too slow? Click on the white cog icon to adjust reading speed and many other settings, including whether or not you’d like the text highlighted as it is read. Want to save a section and listen to it later? Click the white arrow and that page’s content will be downloaded to your computer as an mp3 file which can be played back on on your PC, Mac, iPod, or other mp3 player.

The ABTA is pleased to be able to offer this ReadSpeaker service. If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a call at 800-886-ABTA (2282) or send us an email at abtacares@abta.org.
