In a world where multitasking has become a way of life, we welcome anything that makes our lives easier. Most of us use Microsoft Word on a regular basis. Whether you’re outlining the plot of your novel, documenting a business proposal, or writing an essay for college, it’s a program we’re all fairly familiar with.
But did you know it has a function that will read your document aloud to you? Stick with us, and we’ll show you how to use it.
This feature is useful for many reasons.
· It helps you complete other tasks while you listen to the text.
· It’s handy if you’re proofreading a document you’ve been working on for ages. When you hear the words out loud, you’re able to catch errors more easily.
· It’s also really helpful if you’re trying to achieve a specific tone of voice. Listening to your document allows you to decide if it’s too formal or sufficiently conversational for your audience.
· And let’s be honest, it’s also nostalgic having something read aloud to us. It takes us back to our childhood years, right?
