How will the Narrator Tool help me in Spanish?

Spanish students struggle most with their oral production of the language and their pronunciation. By setting the Narrator in the Voice Settings of this access tool, you will be able to learn better pronunciation of the Spanish text you are reading.


First, follow this link to add the Spanish voice pack to your computer.


After your computer is set to Spanish, visit the settings page in the Ease of Access section of your computer's Control Panel for further setting changes. (See Below)
