Proofreading without actually reading

If you want to proofread something you’ve written, there’s an easy way to do this by listening to your work instead of reading it. The trick is using a text-to-speech tool. This makes it easier to notice mistakes, especially when your eyes are tired. The simplest way to do this is with Google Translate. Paste your text into the translation box and then press the speaker icon. Google’s software will read the text back to you.

If anything sounds off, stop the playback and fix the text. If you want a more precise tool, you can also use this trick in certain versions of Microsoft Word. Select the ‘Review’ pane and choose the ‘Read Aloud’ command. The ‘Speak’ command in your Word accessibility settings
also works.
