||The content can be read aloud
||Focus on the beginning of a paragraph or a sentence and initiate reading with text-to-speech using a feature of the reading system.
||The Show Read Aloud Dialog button is labelled with a speaker symbol. The control that appears offers play/pause, previous and next, settings and close. To exit Read Aloud select the button again.
||Stop and resume reading
||Initiate reading from any point in the book. Stop Read Aloud and note the last read position. Initiate reading again using the Read Aloud feature and check if reading starts at the last read location.
||The pause feature performs as expected. It resumes from the last spoken word. There are also controls to move the reading position back and forward, and to read from top.
||The Read Aloud feature should continue until interrupted by the user
||The Read Aloud feature should continue until interrupted by the user, keeping the text being spoken in view.
||The text being spoken is kept in view. The read aloud feature continues below the currently displayed screen and when the end of the currently loaded document is reached the reading stops.
||All text should be read in the proper order
||Sample text has been provided below to test the reading order. The Paragraph 2 should be read after Paragraph 1 by the Read Aloud feature. Note that visually Paragraph 2 is placed to the left of Paragraph 1 but it is second in the reading order.
||The text is read in the correct order.
||Change Read Aloud reading speed
||It should be possible to adjust (increase/decrease) the speed of reading.
||The voice speed can be adjusted from within the reading system. If changed on the fly, the speed changes when it begins speaking the next paragraph.
||Text to Speech handles punctuations and document structure appropriately
||When Read Aloud is activated, there should be slight pauses after headings, list items etc., rather than reading as if it is one continuous section of text.
||The text is read aloud as expected.
||Text is emphasised as it is spoken by read aloud
||Check if the Text is emphasised as it is spoken by read aloud.
||A yellow highlight visually emphasizes the text that is currently being spoken (paragraph).
||The emphasis or highlight colour can be changed
||Activate Read Aloud feature as described in the previous test. Change the colour of emphasis or visual highlight of the text being read aloud using any feature available in the reading system or the operating system. The users should have a choice of different colours for text highlighting.
||The visual highlighting cannot be customized or turned off.
