A long time ago I use it, and although I did tests with others, this is one of the most practical and economic that I have seen for purposes of reading a lot without straining the eyes.
Text to audio
When you have a long text and you want to read it is a simply great solution. It only requires selecting the text, ctrl + C and the program begins to speak the complete content with the voice and language that has been chosen. In case you want to stop to make corrections or annotations, it marks the text as you speak and some pause or continuation keys allow you to control it (Ctrl + 1 and Ctrl + 2). There are also others to advance or go back a certain amount of words.
It is also very good to know how you are writing, as it helps to improve the score by simple intuition. It does not replace the grammar and writing classes that are necessary in this life, but the very voice of the little Spanish falls to the ground when a paragraph is too long and it becomes annoying if you abuse the short paragraphs broken by commas. Not to mention the bad spelling with the wrongly located words and that are not detected by the Word checker because they are valid.
You can also read while you write, usually at the end of the paragraph.
Text to AVI
It is possible to convert a text file to an .avi or mp3 file in a single stroke, for this you only need to find the file and the program transforms it. It takes a while, but is handy for reading large files while driving; for example, you download “the mystery of capital”, you transfer it to avi, you transfer it to a CD and so you listen to it on that long 5-hour trip instead of spending that Camilo Sesto album that may even be scratched and little culture leaves you after the fourth time.
The most recent version can read files of formats:
- among others
Among the improvements of the 3.7 version is a text editor, which is very good for the purpose of converting a text to avi, since it is likely to do some basic works such as search and replacement or control of start and pause better than in the previous version .
Also from the previous version supports the creation of words from another language, so that it pronounces them well, for this the word and pronunciation is written as it is heard. Loquendo technology is supported, with voices in about 20 different languages.
The utilities can be many, from reading in Spanish, learn to write, exercise the correct pronunciation in English, create audios from texts etc.
Possible download a version trial for 7 days, I remember that the previous one let you fool by changing the system date when installing it. Now surely it requires more trick with the registry edition but in reality I do not see any point in pirating such useful software that barely costs 30 euros.
In short, a good way to invest 30 accumulated banknotes in Paypal. I recommend it!!!
