Text-to-Speech software – a great way to catch errors that that otherwise might be missed. If you missed the mistake in that sentence, you could probably use Text to Speech software. Have your computer read the text back to you, while you read along. Many software packages handle this, with a couple of examples being Simple TTS Reader or Balabolka for PC, Text2Speech for Mac.

When performed in conjunction with a paper-based read-through, these programs can dramatically boost the quality of your output, and help you in determining if the text sounds natural or stilted.

Reading along with the computer-generated voice is particularly important if you have used speech recognition. Listening by itself may mean you overlook homonyms such as their, there, and they’re, etc. Reading out loud along with the computer-generated speech is also very effective.
