Yes, some vendors' database platforms have audio functionality built-in that will produce a computer-generated reading of text-based content such as magazine, newspaper, and journal articles or e-book text.
Things to note about text-reading functionality:
- Text-reading is only available for HTML full-text content, not PDF documents
- Some databases do not offer HTML full-text for some or all of their content
- Search screens and results lists usually do not have text reading functionality
See our Databases with Text Reading Functionality page for lists of those databases at Seneca Libraries that do and do not offer this functionality.
