Improved Outlines

An outline is automatically formed when students highlight text. Students can quickly arrange the contents of the outline to make meaning of the text. In Read:OutLoud 6, the outline is completely modifiable; students can add to and modify text in the outline.
Daisy-Ready, No Conversion

Read:OutLoud 6 is the only one of the top text readers that opens native DAISY 3 files without converting them. There are some disadvantages to conversion in that you can lose key navigation and description information from the DAISY file, and you have to manage multiple file versions and chapters.

Support for Large DAISY Files

Some DAISY files provided by book publishers could be hundreds of megabytes or even several gigabytes in size. Opening a file of this size would take any program to its knees. Read:OutLoud 6 solves this problem with a proprietary method to open and read large DAISY files instantaneously.

Network Ready

Now, you can save files anywhere on your network or on a USB drive for easy access.
