Sequence Reader can be used to read aloud a part of a sequence. This is useful if you wish to compare a sequence on the screen to a printed sequence.

To read a sequence aloud:

        Open the sequence | Select the part to be read (double-click the label to select all) | right-click | Read Selection Aloud

This is shown in figure 1.1.
