Computer, read to me. (New Products).
This Windows program, CoolSpeech, converts text to sound, allowing users to "listen" to text or save it to a .wav file. Similar to VCR controls, the program includes play, pause, rewind, fast forward and stop reading options.
As users type, they can set CoolSpeech to read word-by-word or sentence-by-sentence; users can right-click a file to be read in the background as other work is continued. The software can announce the time on the hour or half-hour, or schedule it to read the text of specific Web sites at specific times. Applications include using the software as a writing aid, a radio receiver, an appointment reminder, a text-to-wave converter, an e-book and e-mail reader, an alarm clock and a computer voice manager.
