Listening instead of Reading on Your PC

Harrisburg, USA (January 29, 2003) Zero2000 Software has released 2nd Speech Center 1.30, a text-to-speech utility for the Windows operating system that converts any text to natural sounding speech or MP3/WAV audio formats.

2nd Speech Center can monitor the Windows Clipboard and automatically process its contents. This feature makes it easy to read Web pages, e-mail messages, documents and much more. Of course, you can import from text files and listen as the program reads it back to you.

2nd Speech Center also allows you to convert text into a MP3/WAV audio file and save it to disk, so you can listen to it later. Using this feature, you can for example create MP3 files from your email, news articles or any text you want, then download it to your portable MP3 player and take it on the road. Plus, they're great for sharing with others via the Internet.

2nd Speech Center supports dozens of male, female and "robotic" voices. For more free voices, please visit https://www.zero2000.com/free-text-to-speech-natural-voices.html.

2nd Speech Center also includes a feature that allows you improve the prosody of text-to-speech translation. Additional features include scheduled reminders, alarms, "key to speech", global hotkeys, Windows Explorer integration and more.

2nd Speech Center will run under Windows 95/98/ME/NT4/2000/XP. The program requires 16MB of RAM and 10MB of disk space.
