Proof reading what you write

imac text to speech feature

Like many internet users, i too am not good at proof reading what i write in emails, blog etc.

Even when i read what i write, i will miss the most obvious mistakes because i am reading it.

So how to solve this common problem, here is a cool trick i use to proof read what i write in my blog, emails etc.

There is a nice feature in mac that lets you text to speech any text you select. So once i finish writing something i just select the text and make the computer read it. This way i can catch the mistakes easily.

I have even added a shortcut for this feature its cmd+shift+s (speak). Now once i am done i just press these keys and mac starts reading what i have written. Then i correct the mistakes and post it online.

Hope this tip will help you in writing more online without mistakes.
