The "read out loud" feature in Adobe Acrobat Pro XI for mac does not work. I have tried adjusting the settings in accessibility and in the reader preferences with no luck. This feature works great on my mac for other applications (preview, text edit, etc.) using the system voice over settings and selecting speech > start speaking. Acrobat uses my default voice selection but I'm not able to adjust the rate of speech no matter what number I put in. It's stuck on "painfully slow" and I can't figure out how to change it.
Can someone help? Alternatively, is there a way to use mac OS system speech > start speaking feature in Acrobat?
