Text Speaker: Text-To-Speech Software Gives Your Computer A Voice
Text Speaker reads documents aloud in natural, human-sounding voices, or converts
them into MP3 or WAV format to listen to later.
Text Speaker is useful when learning to read. Because the programs speech
is so human-like, it is an excellent tool for education. The speed at which
it reads aloud can be increased or decreased to match the needs of any learner.
The word currently being spoken is highlighted, so a student learns to associate
the appearance and the pronunciation.
It is extremely useful when learning foreign languages. By reading text aloud
in a native accent, it helps with learning to read the language and learning to
pronounce it correctly. Native voices are available in English (with a variety
of accents), French, Spanish, German, Italian, Portuguese, Japanese, and Korean.
Text Speaker is valuable to anyone who has difficulty reading, whether because of
visual problems, dyslexia, or unfamiliarity with the language.
The application does more than just speaking aloud documents. Its built-in
word processing features make Text Speaker a perfect choice for proofreading and
correcting documents. Because it can open and save Microsoft Word documents
(including Word 2007 DOCX files), it can edit documents on a computer that does
not have a word processor installed. Text speaker also reads and edits Rich
Text (RTF), text, and HTML files.
Text Speaker is the perfect software to create telephone voice menus. For
example, a restaurant's telephone message can change every day to include the current
specials. By creating the telephone message directly in Text Speaker, a perfectly
recorded MP3 voice message can be created. The message updates can be easily
done without the need for a human speaker. The programs ability to add background
music when converting text to audio gives a real professional touch.
Text Speaker works with many different voice publishers, including AT&T Natural
Voices. From now until January 2009, each copy of Text Speaker will include
two professional quality AT&T voices, Mike and Crystal, a $ 50 USD value.
DeskShare also provides a large collection of free voices
and a catalog of high quality professional voices.
Converting text into speech will help you in many ways, from reducing eyestrain
to saving time and money.

Text Speaker is available directly from DeskShare, at a list price of $ 29.95 USD.
