Text To Speech Reader For Adobe Flash Pages

OS: Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit

BACKGROUND
Slides with text are being presented in a Flash application, and I do not want to read them. I want to listen to them being read.

QUESTION
Can you recommend a tool (paid or freeware) that will read aloud directly from the Flash pages without having to convert to text and paste into another application? I'm already using NCH Verbose, and it's not what I want.

JAWS is the gold standard for screen reading and supports reading Flash content:

There was a known problem a few years ago with JAWS version 11 that it would stop speaking on some web pages with Flash content using Firefox (and Firefox would stop responding). But I haven't seen any reports of that with the latest JAWS, which is version 15 (and Firefox is now at version 26). Here's the Knowledge Base article (from 19-Oct-2010) that discusses the problem and the solution:

There's a good chance that JAWS15/FF26 solved the problem. but if you run into it, this KB solution may help (although I'm not sure if the same technique from back then would work on the new releases). Regards, Joe
