Traditionally you purchased Microsoft Office on DVD for a one-off charge and installed it onto your computer (or it was pre-installed for you). Nowadays you can get Microsoft Office online as a subscription service, and Microsoft has branded this Office 365. You pay per month and can download and install Microsoft Word 2016, Excel 2016, PowerPoint 2016 and so on. When installed, these are just like previous versions of Office: they work offline, and ClaroRead works perfectly with them. You’ve simply obtained them differently.
ClaroRead is not currently compatible with the Click-to-Run version of Microsoft Office. (more…)
ClaroRead will speak from Office Starter Edition using mouse select. To do this, highlight the text you want to be read out, ClaroRead should then speak this text. Click and Play functionality as well as highlighting in Microsoft Office Starter Edition is currently unsupported.
An update to ClaroRead V4 is required to allow it to work with Word 2011, please download and run ClaroUp to update.
