Read Aloud

Proofreading articles, particularly those I write myself, is difficult as reading is not typically a word-by-word exercise and my brain loves to just jump over mistakes like the typical "the the".  But listening uses other brain paths, so hearing a "the the" will jump out big time.  So to improve the quality of my finished work, I've started using the Chrome extension Read Aloud.  I just highlight the text I want to review, click the bullhorn icon parked at the end of the URL bar, then close my eyes and just listen for my mistakes.
