I use Foxit Reader for TTS* only as SumatraPDF doesn't have it. But lately Foxit has become intolerable so i am looking for a replacement PDF software with TTS* support.
NOTE: Please don't suggest Adobe & Browsers (Edge).

foxit reader 7.3.4.311 is the last good version with no ads, bloats or services
basically no significant feature loss

since v8, I can't tolerate those useless features added
Where can i find it?

Sorry, forgot to mention i have windows 7. Additionally, I am looking for a software not browser.
Edge will come to Widnows 7 probably in future. But for pdf, you would have to wait for more input from MT members.

Microsoft Edge comes built-in with W10, has PDF Support and TTS Support, people no longer install third-party PDF readers.

Since you on W7, you'll have to rely on Foxit Reader (either that or use your browser as PDF reader, and there's lots of extensions for TTS).

Let's see what happens in the future. In 2020, extended support for windows 7 sp1 will expire too. i doubt Microsoft will think of bringing new software to a dead windows.

for me, using any browser for pdf reading is not an option except in emergency case when the brand new PC has no software installed
it's slow as hell especially with hundreds of MB textbook with complex elements
only good dedicated pdf readers can open those files without lags or freezes

also, no commenting, no highlighting or screenshot taking
but slow speed is the main reason

Exactly, i am looking for a dedicated software for pdf.
I could do this the hard way & install every pdf reader there is to check & see if it meets my requirements instead of choosing the easy way and asking for dedicated software, which MT users are currently using, to choose from.
