PowerTalk 1.2.14

Automatic speech for PowerPoint presentations
PowerTalk was designed to be a free program that automatically speaks any presentation or slide show running in Microsoft PowerPoint for Windows.

You just download and install PowerTalk and while you open and run the presentation as usual it speaks the text on your slides. The advantage over other generic 'Text To Speech' programs is that PowerTalk is able to speak text as it appears and can also speak hidden text attached to images.

Speech is provided by the standard synthesised computer voices that are provided with Windows.

Main features:

  • Aids you if you have difficulty speaking or you have an audience that contains people with sight problems (visual impairments, low vision or blind) or who have dyslexia
  • Helps you access presentations when there is no speaker and you are partially sighted
  • Creates engaging school activities such as reading stores created by students
  • Simple to use as you just select a presentation and it runs in PowerPoint as usual
  • Speaks the text on any presentation and uses standard Windows speech
  • Waits for text to appear and animation effects to play before speaking
  • Will speak hidden 'alternative text' for pictures, graphics shapes and text
  • Lets you add instant narration to presentations without the need to record speech
  • Is a useful tool for testing presentation accessibility when using a screen reader
