    Text to speech programs w/ word highlighting you tried?

    Software to read and highlight text as each word is being
    I've tried a few like SpeakIt in chrome.

    I am trying to find something like this that is free or doesn't cost as much

    The program highlights a sentence in yellow and a the word being read in teal. I like that dual highlighting system.

    There is also foxread but I don't use firefox and it seems to be not updated since 2008

    What text to speech programs with word highlighting have you tried and would recommend?

    But, you want a free or cheap program.

    I found a list for you to peruse.
