Can I start the read aloud function at the location where I click?

Is there a way to click on a sentence to start "reading aloud" right there where I click, instead of having to read the whole page?

Thanks

If you activate ROL for a document and then click on a piece of text it would start reading just that text.

Hey thanks for the response.  And I think that is true, because it worked that way when I had Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on a windows 8.1 machine.  But I'm on a Windows 10 machine now, and I can't get the same feature working like it did before.  I would love to be able to click a paragraph and have it read only the paragraph, like I had before.  I also am using a trial of Adobe Acrobat and it also doesn't do it.  I would be willing to pay the $25 monthly subscription fee if I could get this to work, to read aloud each paragraph.

Ok sorry - just realised it meant Read Out Loud. I activated this and it still isn't starting at the location I have my cursor.  I also don't have an option in the drop down menu to move to location

Hi Aspley37673756n44u,

 

Thank you for reaching out. 

 

You can only select to read a particular page or the complete document using the Read out loud feature. In Acrobat, go to Menu > View > Read out loud.

For more information on Read out loud feature, refer to the following help document: https://adobe.ly/4eatrK8

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi
