DSpeech 1.62

A simple utility designed to work as a text to speech tool that can easily read the text you enter, while allowing you to adjust its pronunciation speed
DSpeech is a text to speech application that reads the text you input, with various configuration settings to help it serve its purpose.

Obviously, you don't need a complex interface for such a program, so DSpeech boasts a rather simple look that perfectly allows you to experience all built-in features.

The main window for instance lets you configure most critical parameters, be they those concerning the voice or the way it reads the text you write in a dedicated field.

Besides the fact that you can select the voice, you're also allowed to set up sound quality and the hardware you wish to use for recording, with a separate tool to save the output as MP3 or WAV.

Although this isn't quite necessary, DSpeech integrates a font selector as well, but also a so-called “Commands” panel for speaking the written text. You can pause and speak from cursor, but also speak previous, current or next line.

The good thing is that DSpeech gives you the power to adjust the voice from the get go, thanks to three sliders placed in the main window aimed at setting up volume, speed and pitch.

Shortcut support is also included, which means you can switch voices, adjust volume or speak the written text just by pressing a pre-defined key combination.

Obviously, you don't need a super fast system to use DSpeech and the app seems to work without a flaw on all Windows iterations.

Overall, DSpeech does its job very well and requires only minimum configuration to serve its purpose. Clearly aimed at all types of users, be they beginners or more experienced.

What's New in This Release:
  • DSpeech is now able to read the subtitles while watching a film of the same, then supports opening files of subtitles (.SRT format). Through this feature you can get read subtitles while watching a movie without having to read them on the screen (which is often impossible to follow well the film). If you have set a different voice to read the text in quotation marks, this will improve the final result, because the standard subtitle provides the dual voice.
