ePubs will work with the paid version of Read & Write for Google Chrome. Contact TextHelp for pricing information. If you do not have the paid version, you should request a PDF version of the file from the ICAM. Then you can open the PDF in the free version of Read & Write for Google Chrome, this version includes the text to speech option. We have created a step by step video showing how to open the PDF in Read & Write for Google Chrome. If the PDF version is not available, you can request the HTML version. We have created instructions to open the HTML and have it read. (Coming soon) The HTML version will not include images.
