Speak Selection (SSN)

This program is dead simple. While running, it wil speak out newly selected pieces of text to a user. (actually it speaks out whatever the current focus is, since that actually seems to work.)

It does not include any screen reading functionality. For that, I would shamelessly recommend a project I work on called Odilia or a project I don't work on: Orca.



  • at-spi2-core
  • libspeechd
  • gcc or clang


  • Ctrl + g to stop speech. (hard)
  • Also speak children. (medium)
  • Speak links embedded within paragraphs. (easy)
