Really wish there were an easy way to get text-to-speech to not read parenthetical citations. Contemplated throwing something together myself (extract text from pdf, get rid of things formatted as citations using regex, then pipe to text to speech or something) but didn’t feel like expending the effort.

Though these days I mostly read papers on my tablet, and when I’m using text to speech I use the setting where I select the text I want it to read, so I just avoid selecting citations.

(To be clear I don’t use text to speech all the time; I mostly use it when I’m having a particularly bad ADHD day or when I need to proofread something.)
