How to write like a lawyer
Enjoyable reading

Ultra Hal

Back in my law-review days, we would proofread in pairs, one member of the pair reading aloud to the other. Now Eric Waltmire has found some free software that takes the place of your law-review proofreading partner. “The Ultra Hal Text-to-Speech Reader application will read your documents out loud in one of its many high quality voices. This can be a great tool for proof reading because hearing your text out loud helps you spot all mistakes.” Says Eric, “The voices in the reader are not the most human-like but it gets the job done.” (Hat tip to Law Dawg Blawg.)
