Versatile clipboard text reader
SpeechPlayer automatically reads text out aloud the moment text is copied to the clipboard. There is no need to paste the text in another window.
This means that you can have SpeechPlayer read your emails, web pages, reports or any text that you can Control+C on!
What if you don’t want SpeechPlayer to read text out aloud at every copy operation? No problem! Just turn off clipboard monitoring and turn it on only when you need SpeechPlayer to be at your service.
Configurable voice settings
You can choose a voice; adjust the speaking rate, voice pitch, and volume.
You can even switch between settings while SpeechPlayer is reading a piece of text!
Large TV-like closed captioning with customizable captions
Display words spoken as captions at the bottom of your screen much like TV captions. Captions come in handy when words spoken are inaudible.
The captions are large enough so that you don’t have to squint your eyes reading them. Great for those visually-impaired or visually-challenged!
You can also choose to customize the appearance of the captions to suit your taste.
Minimalist user interface
You can control the main functions of SpeechPlayer right from the Windows tray! Just right-click on the icon to access the features. This makes SpeechPlayer one of the most unobtrusive text-to-speech application around while keeping important functions accessible.
Convenient mini player with advance controls such as skip reading to next or previous sentence
SpeechPlayer also comes with an easy-to-use mini player control which allows you to have convenient one-click access or one-key access to main SpeechPlayer functions like play (speak), pause, stop, clipboard monitoring, and closed captioning.
In addition, while SpeechPlayer is reading text out aloud, you can also skip reading to the next or previous sentence.
There is also an automatic repeat feature where SpeechPlayer will read out the text again after reaching the end.
Export spoken audio to WAV or MP3 (with embedded lyrics)
Save converted speech to audio file formats such as WAV and MP3. You can even export spoken audio directly to iTunes where you can sync it to your iPod portable music player.
You can also choose to include the transcript of the spoken text as lyrics in the MP3 file!
For Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP SP2 or better.
Note: MP3 export support requires a separate one-time download and installation of a free third-party encoder.
