This guide provides an overview of the text-to-speech capabilities of library article databases and ebook collections. Many of our databases allow readers to listen to a texts of books or articles or the transcripts of video as they read them. In many cases audio segments can be downloaded as MP3 files. For most databases, students need only a computer with speakers to hear the texts.
Each tab across the top of this guide describes how text-to-speech functions for major vendors for journal databases, ebooks, and streaming videos.
