A. Use a Freeware Program

HelpRead, a freely downloadable program, has been developed under the guidance of the Hawaii Education Literacy Project.
We invite you to download it from our server, together with the two certus Free Numerology Reading voice version files mentioned above. We compressed the package in the file hrcertus.zip (1.68Mb) which contains hp27d6.txt and intr5d.txt as the two certus Free Numerology Reading voice files, in a subfolder named certus Files.
After unzipping the package in its own place, run SETUP.EXE to install the program in a place of your choice.
Once HelpRead is installed, you can listen to any text file on your computer (that inludes the two certus Free Numerology Reading files supplied) or any webpage that you visit online or have stored. To do this online, have HelpRead loaded and depress its Web button. This will read out the current webpage to you.
When offline, copy the desired text or saved webpage into Windows' Clipboard, ie highlight the wanted text and click Edit, Copy. In the case of an entire file, you may alternatively press the Open button in HelpRead and select the file from the directory tree (eg one of the two certus Free Numerology Reading files). Reading, or stop reading, is activated by pressing the Read button.
Further information and tips regarding the design of your own voice version text files you find in Readme.txt and Web.htm in the folder of HelpRead. You may also want to download a help-webpage from HelpRead by pressing the Help button in HelpRead while being online.
