I need a good screen reading app that can read text in a browser window out loud to me quickly and clearly.

I am looking for preferably a Firefox plugin but any browser will work... If it must be an application free is best.

I use Windows 7

Windows 7 has this built in:

  1. Start / Search / type "narrator"
  2. Start narrator and minimise
  3. Go to a web page, and hit Ctrl+Shift+Spacebar

This will work in any browser - any application with readable text for that matter.
