I tested some, 90% of them don't read PDF, 1 of them (text2speech, a
really bad one) doesn't read compressed pdf and TextAloud (which seems
a bit better according to what I saw) can handle compressed pdf...
Does someone know anything in this area?

Even though is reminds me of my youth, going on ugly sites where you
can get outdated trial versions of 30$ crappy windows softwares is
quite annoying...

Thank you!
