how do I couple both programs? I mean I have a book in ADE and then I open the TtS software or how does it works?
Okay, but is it something that you're working toward? just curious. Adobe has made made my academic life so much easier, and this would make it even easier.
How did you make that work. In my screen MS Edge only reads titles and page numbers.
Is there any way to be able to convert acsm files to some format from which we can read these ebooks by sending them to our pdas with Adobe Reader for Palm OS? I loved checking out Adobe ebooks from my local library and reading them on my pda, and rarely had any problems...until the end of March, when Adobe changed everything. I don't like to read books on my computer. Has Adobe made any provisions for those of us who specifically bought Adobe ebooks to read on our pdas, but now find we cannot because of the new file format?
thanks so much!
p.s. I have no problems opening the books with Digital Editions (but I don't want to read them on my computer). Why did Adobe (also) change the format so that the ebooks will no longer even open with Adobe Acrobat 8 professional?
I'm reading your comment 11 years later and they still haven't fixed the issue. Clearly they don't care about people who have difficulties reading.
I'm afraid I have to agree, and I have a few problems with this myself. In short, anyone over 40 needs this feature, and many people use this feature at all ages. For a "community" you leave out a lot of people-but only, it seems, the disabled ones...I've bought books and cannot read them or have them read out loud to me and if I could uploan then to or change them to a word doc, my computer could just read them to me. Tell me what you are so worried about. Theft? I bought the books. I could have bought them as books, used or otherwise, for less than I paid for the "digital edition." You must have agreemets with these licensing partners and yet you make it as difficult as possible for the public to get their work done. Why? If we go back to reading books will that make you happy? More money? Greed, the enemy of enlightenment.
Will it ever be supported? Are you working towards that goal or should we find another way and shut up about it...
You can do so, if you have a Mac.
I have a Mac and due to digital edition my e-books will not open in anything else, however if you go to Mac system preference (Apple Menu), then to 'Speech' then press 'text to speech' button tick the following box ' Speak selected text when key is pressed' then choose your activation key(s) example cmd (apple command)+A
once you open Adobe digital editions just highlight what you want read aloud, then press your activation key(s), and then the Mac will read it to you!
Hope this helps.
