The application provides a method (55) for proofreading text. The method (55) for proofreading text includes providing the text as data which is loaded on a computer with a display, a sensor, and an audio output. The computer further includes a current cursor position in the text. The method for proofreading text further includes a step for detecting a signal (56) from the sensor, where if the signal detected corresponds with a first pre-determined Morse signal "e" (60) the computer either starts or stops reading aloud (76) the text beginning from the cursor position, through the audio output, depending on whether the computer is in a read mode or not. The method (55) for proofreading also includes a step where if the signal detected corresponds with a second predetermined Morse signal "i" (65), the computer starts reading aloud text beginning from the end of a preceding sentence (77), through the audio output.
