Reading email attachments using text-to-speech

Q: What about attachments?

A: Yes Speaking Email can also read out attachments. PDFs or Word documents will be converted to text and read aloud where possible. Note that if a PDF has been scanned, it will not be able to extract the text.

If you have a long document to read through, just email it to yourself and listen when you like. 

It also reads out calendar invitations, and plays audio attachments (mp3 or wav files, which may be sent from a voice mail system for example).

There is a switch to turn this on or off in preferences under Preferences > What Content to Read Out.
