Listen to Proofread
We’ve all had the experience of proofreading reports on a monitor only to find an error in the printed report. Among a number of factors, document fatigue may be responsible for this. The “flow” of a report can also suffer as a result. To break up the monotony, some strategies can be employed, including printing the document.
Additionally, one can alter the modality of the report by using text-to-speech functions in order to listen to the report. Though one could read along while viewing the document on screen, following along using a printed version of the report alters the report’s modality even further. Use a pen and to track edits easily.
Here are links to instructions for setting up text-to-speech on Apple and Windows operating systems.
