EBSCO Publishing has added text-to-speech support to EBSCOhost® databases by embedding Texthelp Systems’ SpeechStream toolbar—a benefit provided at no additional cost to the user. Users will be able to take advantage of this new feature with any full-text articles available in HTML.

Text-to-speech support allows users to read along while a human-sounding voice speaks the text on the screen. The support toolbar provides assistance to English Language Learners, users with low vision, slight physical and/or learning disabilities, as well as eBook and PDA users.
