Use TextPipe Lite to pre-process your files before TextAloud speaks them.
You can achieve far more natural speech by converting common acronyms such as ‘UK’ to either ‘U.K.’ or the full ‘United Kingdom’ instead of the default “ukh”. You can add your own search and replace terms, such as country abbreviations, measurement abbreviations, common acronyms for your area of work and much more, even fixing common OCR errors for the scanned documents you need read to you.
