Hi, yes you can. Mind you, you'd have to pause or stop the text aloud speech. 
Another thing you can do is record text files to mp3, which is handy sometimes. 
It's very jaws friendly, which is another plus.
                    John.

  John,

  I've never tryed Text Aloud, heard of it loads over the years but...

  Can you still scroll in the document with the arrows, or will it just play 
the file back using a sapi voice like a media player?

    Hi Lyn, do you want to keep the format unchanged, or do you just want to 
read the text? If you only need to read the text Text Aloud will convert pdf to 
text, and will do it extremely quickly, literally in a couple of seconds. It 
isn't free though. For ease of use though it's the best program for doing it 
that I've found. Once you've told Windows you want to open pdf files with text 
aloud that's all you need to do. when you click on a pdf text aloud will 
convert and put the text file in the same folder as the pdf.
                        John.

      Hi list,
      I was wondering if any of you knew of a good, possibly free alternative 
to the bulky adobe reader to read .PDF files? Accessible with Jaws too of 
course. I would appreciate any feedback on this. Thanks a lot.
