Notepad++ is one of the most powerful alternatives available to default Windows Notepad. Being an extensible application, it comes with a host of plug ins and extensions, making it one of the most useful text editors. Speech is a plugin for Notepad++ that enables the text-to-speech function. Using Speech, you can listen to either a selected part of the document, or the whole document. Like other text-to-speech apps, you can pause speech and resume when you return.

To install Speech, open Plugin Manager from Plugins menu. Under the Available tab, select Speech and click Install. If it fails to install the plugin, download the plug-in (link given at the bottom of post), unzip the package to Notepad++/Plugins folder and restart Notepad++.

Plugin Manager

Once installation is complete, you can access Speech plugin from Plugins menu. If you want Speech to read a specific part of document, highlight the section and then select Speak Selection from Speech menu. However, clicking Speak Document reads your entire document. The Stop Speech option lets you stop the application from reading further. You may also pause speech and resume speech from Speech menu.
