Do you feel that it would be easy to learn and understand if someone is there with you to read your projects, assignments and other textual documents? Are you waiting for someone to do this job for you? You need not to worry any more, today I’ll tell you about a software called ‘Balabolka’ to fulfill your text to speech requirements.
Balabolka is a Text-To-Speech (TTS) software that converts your textual information to speech/vocal data. Balabolka use computer voices loaded on your system. The on-screen text can be saved as a WAV, MP3, MP4, OGG or WMA file. Clipboard content can be read by the program, or you can use it to view the text from AZW, CHM, DjVu, DOC, EPUB, FB2, HTML, LIT, MOBI, ODT, PRC, PDF and RTF files, customize font and background colour, control reading from the system tray or by the global hotkeys.
This software is based on the various versions of Microsoft Speech API (SAPI); you can alter a voice’s parameters, including rate and pitch. You can even apply a special substitution list to improve the quality of the voice’s articulation. This feature is highly useful when you want to change the spelling of words. The syntax of regular expressions are used as rules for the pronunciation correction.
Using Balabolka you can save the synchronized text in external LRC files or in MP3 tags inside the audio files. When an audio file is played with players on a computer or on modern digital audio players, the text is displayed synchronously (at the same way, as lyrics for songs).
Balabolka supports skins that allow you to customize your window appearance.
