Read out Loud for French text?

Post by bernard meunier » Fri Jun 07, 2019 5:07 pm

Hi,
The read out loud for English is a perfect tool.
I'm looking for a way to read French texts as well.
I did play with voice prefs and see that there are currently 2 installed ... but both are English (United States).
Is there a way to add French ?
BTW: PDF-Xchange Editor 8.331
Regards
Bernard

Hello Bernard,

The Editor pulls its voices from Windows directly, so you should be able to expand this by finding and installing an official french voice package from Microsoft. You may need to restart either the Editor, or windows before the new voices will appear.
