Installation in Contao 4.X

The readspeaker module allows you to implement the software by ReadSpeaker (www.readspeaker.com) easily into your Contao setup. It can be added as a content element or as a module in the page layout (as well the demo version as the full version).

The Web-Reading Experience

Extend the reach of your online content by instantly creating an audio version of your website and provide your users with the possibility of listening to your content.

The Document-Reading Experience

Make your documents accessible to more people by letting your users view and listen to them on any device with no plugins required.

Full version & demo version

The readspeaker module can be implemented as a full version or as a demo version. As soon as you implement the readspeaker module, you will have immediate access to a text-to-speech tool. This was arranged exclusively for the implementation in Contao. The demo version includes 3 languages (German, English & French) which are limited to a certain number of characters. Furthermore, the demo version is powered by a pre-roll which is played before your text. Included in the demo version is the web-reading tool and the DocReader that makes documents talk.

This way, you can test ReadSpeaker instantly with your own content on your own websites and convince yourself of the excellent speech quality. If you are interested in the full version, please contact ReadSpeaker (contact details: see below).

Full version pricing

The pricing is evaluated individually for every website. First of all, it depends on the number of page impressions of your website. Please contact ReadSpeaker in order to receive an individual offer for your website.

Example: a website with about 100,000 page impressions per month will cost about 900 EUR a year plus a one-time setup fee of 500 EUR.


If you have special words or phrases within your content that are not pronounced correctly by ReadSoeaker, that is not a problem. Tell ReadSpeaker about it and the correct pronunciation will be added to a custom dictionary especially for you.

This custom dictionary is already included in the one-time setup fee and is only available in the full version of ReadSpeaker. The dictionary is not available in the demo version.

Content elements and frontend modules

The reading tool is available as a content element and as a frontend module in order to integrate it into a page layout.


The use of ReadSpeaker in Contao is very easy. In order to help you, a manual was added to the backend of Contao dealing with the following issues:

  • Configuring languages
  • Adding ReadSpeaker as a content element
  • Adding ReadSpeaker as a module in the page layout
  • Adding DocReader as a content element
  • Tips for web admins and web developers
