A1 SpeechTRON is a powerful Text-To-Speech program for converting a text file into voice. The file can be typed or pasted into the Text Window and just pressing the speak button converts the text into clear voice of the users choosing by the Synthesizer. The text should not contain any abbreviations or acronyms as the text is converted literally. The program can be used over a wide range of applications that output in text form. The program has as an aesthetically designed user interface. The Speech Engine is embedded in the program which gives a very high quality speech synthesis. The Side Control bar enables setting of the Font and adjusting the Fore-Color and Back-Color of the text display box. The control at the top has all the word processing facilities like cut, copy, paste, opening a file etc. The software is easy to handle. The text to be read can be imported by the tools in the Top Control bar or the text can be pasted on the Main Text Box.
Once the text is entered in the Main Text Box, pressing the Speak Button will start the speaking. There are additional buttons for Stopping, Erasing and Pausing/Resuming the text.
There are sliders for adjusting the speaking speeds and altering the Tone of the voice. There is a dropdown list for selection from multiple voices. The sound output of the Speech synthesizer is displayed via customizable graphical visual display. The current speed and variable voice tones from low to high pitch as well as the status of the synthesizer are displayed. The speech synthesis output can be recorded as wav files to disk by clicking the "RECORD" button. The "STOP" button can be used to stop the recording at any time or else the recording will stop automatically when all the text in the Main Text Box has been recorded to the .wav file. The Speed and Tone settings cannot be adjusted while recording and the default settings will be used. The help file is quite elaborate and the different functions are easily understandable to utilize the utility.
