One of the problems you may run into is that it will read everything on the Windows page. An easy fix for that is to highlight the text itself, copy it (right click, then copy), then paste it into a Word document, then activate text-to-speech. 

If you use some other interface than Windows, just tell me what it is and I'll give you tips to work around it. Best of luck!
