Making Your Writing Sound Natural Using Text-to-Speech Software

If you want to make your writing sound natural, then the best way is to hear it read to you out-loud. Trying to do it yourself may suffice, for a while. But eventually you realize that hearing it from outside yourself makes it clearer and then you can concentrate only on the natural sounds of your wording.

But how do you do that?

In another article on this blog, I introduced a free program called Balabolka. It is a very nice, little text-to-speech program that uses your computer’s built-in voices to read text back to you. You can hear the text and immediately edit it to make it sound right. Repeat as often as you wish because the program never gets tired, unlike I do reading my own words. 😦

You can even export the audio file and send it as an email attachment. How about using it as an audio version of your blog articles?

Be creative and let this free software make you a better writer.
