It’s an old self-editing tactic to read what you’ve written out loud to catch any errors. But sometimes your internal autocorrect reads over mistakes your brain already made. If you’re struggling to proofread your writing well, consider using text-to-speech to pinpoint errors, recommends Lifehacker’s Dave Greenbaum. This option, available on Macs, iOS, Windows, Android and Chrome, can give you a new perspective on the words and make errors stand out. Having a native speaker read your writing out loud is ideal, but a program can help if you don’t have a colleague available.
