I have Adobe Reader V 10.1.8 on my laptop and it has a Read Out Loud feature that reads the text in the e-book. The problem is that the volume is too low to hear what the reader is reading. Even with my laptop volume at 100% this is a problem.

Is there an application I can use or another way I can manually increase the volume of the Read out Loud feature?

  • @JasonDown. Thanks for the edit. It really expressed my problem clearly.

Check Adobe Reader's internal volume:

  • Go to the Edit menu, then Preferences....
  • On the left, 2/3 of the way down, is the category Reading. Click on that.
  • You should see a box labeled Read Out Loud Options.
  • There is a Volume selector ranging from 1 to 10; make sure that is high enough.
  • 1
    This is exactly what I have been looking for. The volume was set to 4, I have increased it to 8 and can now hear clearly. Thanks a million!!!
