The software allows users to speak the text copied to the Clipboard from various applications.
With this software, you can add a new entry for any plain text you copy from your applications. What's more, each new entry is automatically synthesized and spoken, even when a new entry is added. And when Continuous Play is enabled, recent entries will keep playing in the listing.
Plus, if you opt to highlight spoken words while the text is spoken, you can do so by enabling this option. And, if needed, you can use the Clear All and Save All entries to file via Export, and Import file (append) to add it back later.
This software also offers the ability to change Voice Name, Voice Rate (speed), and Voice Volume to customize the way the spoken words sound. There is even an Advanced feature that lets you add SSML Markup to alter the Voice for certain text in an entry.
Additionally, you can save all entries to a single plain text file or a single audio (wav/mp3 for now) file. And, for added convenience, Global Keyboard Shortcuts allow you to Play, Stop, Dis/Enable Clipboard Monitoring, and more at the touch of a button.
Finally, for those long articles that need to be spoken, the Split Paragraphs option auto-splits them into new entries for easy listening.
It's worth noting that some of the software's features are limited in the free version, but overall this software is worth considering for anyone who needs spoken text functionality.
