editor's review




Smart Talk is a lightweight software application built specifically for helping you hear the text that you write being spoken aloud.

Simple looks

You are welcomed by a well-organized set of functions that allows you to trigger most of the actions with minimal effort. The interface is quite clean and plain, and you can type or import the text that you want to be read aloud, and adjust the volume and voice rate pretty easily, thanks to the built-in sliders.

Main features

Smart Talk gives you the possibility to type in the text directly into the primary panel or upload the information from a plain text file.

Additionally, the tool is able to speak the text stored within the clipboard, and lets you activate the mouse mode for making the utility speak the text found where the mouse cursor is positioned on the desktop.

What’s more, you are allowed to perform basic editing operations with the text (cut, copy, paste, delete), start, stop, or pause the playing mode, record the audio streams, as well as pick the voice from several preset options.

The tool also provides support for several tweaking parameters, which enable you to view additional information about the selected voice and assign hotkeys for triggering various actions, such as speak the clipboard content, toggle the mouse mode, and open the configuration panel.

Bottom line

To sum things up, Smart Talk offers a simple yet efficient software solution when it comes to helping you hear the text being spoken out loud, and is suitable for rookies and professionals alike.
