相当新颖的多媒体应用程序，NextUp TextAloud 可以转换任何应用程序中的文字成为声音或MP3文件。平常是常驻在Windows系统列中，随时等待使用者利用它来读取Email、Web page或其它文件中的文字。
NextUp TextAloud 是一款语音合成软体，特别为丧失语言能力的人所设计。NextUp Talker可以从文本合成语音，与其他同类软体不同的是，NextUp Talker侧重於对话，在打字的时候将文字合成为语音，将电脑变成说话的工具。
NextUp TextAloud 是利用监视剪贴簿的方式来抓取所要发声的文字(所以使用者可以直接利用复制文字的方式来启动NextUp TextAloud)，而使用者可以决定是要马上聆听，还是转存成MP3、WAV文件，等到有空闲时再利用喜欢的MP3播放程序来收听。除了NextUp TextAloud内附的声音之外，使用者还可以到作者网页去下载其它的声音，让使用者可以随自己的喜好来变换发声的人.
