Just wondering if this is possible because I have been looking and haven't found a way to do this. I have found ways to create and save new Word documents, but I'm developing a program which opens, reads to a RichTextBox Object and then speak the text back. I have it working for .txt files, but I'm working on trying to get it to work for Word and Adobe documents too so if you have any advice that would be great thanks. This isn't for anything, but my personal use so any type of coding would work as there are no restrictions. Anyway I would appreciate any advice at all or a definitive answer that this isn't possible so I can forget it. Thanks.
