    Is there a tool that could read out contents of and flyonthewall as they get refreshed?

    How difficult would it be to write a FireFox addon to do that? I am a decent programmer.

    Would love to have the contents read out via an audio addon instead of having to read it all the time. ;-)

    I am trying to improve my trading tools. One addon I use is SplitBrowser

    Using SB, I divide a FireFox window in 2 parts. One I use for Briefing the other for fly. That way, I can read both news sources in one window. Otherwise, I have to toggle back and forth between two FireFox windows. Makes my trading day that much more easier.

    Any other little improvements that you guys have or can suggest?

    I also use Free NaturalReader to read out Briefing/fly. I select some text and hit the play button and FNR does a very good job.

    I want to take this one step further. Instead of what I currently do, it would be better if a program/addon realizes that briefing has refreshed new text and should auto read it out to me. Hence am thinking of a addon to do this.

    Fly audio is good. Nowadays, I listen mainly to newsstrike. It is free and good.
