Portable Angel's Vox 220.127.116.11
Lightweight and easy to use
The application only requires around 3 Mb of space on your hard disk drive and a barely noticeable amount of system resources. Seeing how this is the portable version, you can take it anywhere without worrying whether or not it runs on different machines.
You get quickly accommodated with the interface, because it resembles a common audio player. All elements you add are stored in a playlist and playback options are clearly visible. Your are mostly required to sit back and enjoy favorite audio books.
Import, manage and export audio books
Some of the most commonly used sound formats can be loaded in the application. This can easily be done by dragging desired items over the main window, or through the dedicated file menu.
You can create your own audio books with a mouse clicks. A name needs to be attributed, after which you simply load each chapter and have it saved and exported to file.
Additionally, an integrated feature gives you the possibility to have the computer automatically shut down when playback ends or after a given amount of time. Moreover, a report can be issued that includes the number of played tracks, as well as duration or frequency.
To end with
All in all, Portable Angel's Vox is a handy application to keep around and have your favorite pieces of fiction read to you. It's incredibly easy to use and you can take this version everywhere you go. The only disappointment is it cannot be minimized to system tray, having seen it can make use of media buttons on your keyboard.
