When they can no longer read from the screen

Share your ideas about the practical side of caring.
Although I can get big print on my laptop for my wife (with ARMD) she finds it difficult to
keep scrolling down, struggling to see the scroll bar etc.

I cannot get 'Narrator' to work in W10 but found this wonderful program.

You paste in text and it will read it to you at various speeds and in various voices
(male or female) It will keep the text for further reading if not finished all at once.

Now when someone sends my wife a letter she can just sit down comfortably and have it read to her at half speed.

Great to have discovered this Albert and free too. Has your wife tried it out? I shall pass this onto others I know who might benefit.

Yes, my wife recently sat and listened to a long email someone had sent her. We used a man's voice at half speed (no reduction in pitch BTW ).

She listened to half and heard the rest next day. It kept her place as to how far in she had read
just like an audio bookmark, as it were.

Yes, pass it on so others may have a slightly happier Xmas :)
Thank you for sharing this Albert. Mum has macular degeneration so this could help her.
