Let the computer Read Out the PDF Content for you

Did you know this? You can listen to any PDF instead of reading with Adobe Reader 7.0 or 6.0, and the short-cut keys are:

To Hear The Current Page - Ctrl+Shift+V
To Hear The Entire Document - Ctrl+Shift+B
To Pause - Ctrl+Shift+C
To Stop - Ctrl+Shift+E

Open any PDF File and test the above. Its amazing!!! Thanks to Ganesh Dalvi for sending this tip through mail.

After going through the Adobe website, I learnt that:

Adobe Reader 7.0 contains many capabilities specifically designed to make it easier for people with disabilities to read PDF files, regardless of whether the files have been optimized for accessibility. It leverages accessibility functions built into Windows® and Macintosh operating systems, and allows adjustment of user preferences to optimize the reading experience for a variety of disabilities.
