On the KDE desktop, or maybe use a panel button so it will not be covered by
your running applications, place an icon with this action:

dcop klipper klipper getClipboardContents | fmt | festival --tts

Then simply highlight text with the mouse and click the icon. The highlighted
text is read to you. Very cool.

(I would like to acknowledge that this tip originally came from another list
member. I do not have the person's name, but I saved the tip and have been
using it!)
