Listen to a piece of text being spoken out in the correct language and voice. This option can be turned on within Scan Text and Batch Scan if you're reading text that could be in a different language than your system language. If the same piece of document has multiple languages, the voice will automatically switch between paragraphs. Use this if you come across multilingual documents or when you're travelling abroad.
You can always adjust this language on the Read tab on the Read Preferences of Scan Text or on the Settings tab.
