Inspired by that evil device many of us were tormented by as children, the Speak&Spell, AnalogX SayIt gives your computer a synthesized voice to rival that of Colossus (from the movie Colossus: The Forbin Project). Type in any word or phrase, set the sliders to the appropriate settings, and click the 'Render' button - out pops a nice little wave file. Or, if you are just playing around, use the 'Preview' button an hear what it sounds like. It's that simple. AnalogX SayIt outputs 16-bit wave files, and can handle phrases up to 500 characters, more than enough for your average computer speech needs.

This site has heaps of other audio and other utilities, well worth a look around. I found the sound to be too electronic and tool too hard to use (no doco and no reset for options).

This is a free text to speech program that uses windows notepad. Any text that is cut and pasted into the text file SayIt 2000 will read to you.

This gave quite reasonable speech for the words I tried, I think it uses Windows 2000 built in text to speech.

About these Bookmarks

These bookmarks are of subjects or products I find useful (or think I may in the future). I never link to a site as a pre-condition for them linking to me! As I use Windows I am mainly interested in software for this operating system. Where good free software exists I generally only list the free software (I list some shareware and even some commercial software where it is exceptional).

If you have some completely free software (no adware and without timeouts or major restrictions) which you would like listed then please email me:

  1. The URL (direct to resource's page) - not to the download.
  2. A proposed category (existing one if possible)
  3. A short description
To bypass my SPAM filter the subject should begin "SUGGESTED LINK:".

Creating These Book Mark Pages

This page was automatically created from Windows internet shortcuts (or favorites) created with IE or Netscape (OS/2 WPS URLs can also be imported). You can comment any link or category and just about anything can be changed (links don't even need to be in tables). PPWIZARD, a free tool for Windows, Mac OS X, Unix or OS/2 built these pages using this source code .

All URLs are checked periodically using the my free URL validation tool (for Windows and OS/2). This ensures that very few if any links point to moved pages or return 404 errors etc.
