If you can find a portable app even better.


Ab-so-lutely, mate; couldn't agree more. The majority of my regular Windows apps that I use are PortableApps. There's only two I run that aren't.....well, actually, three.....if you count TextAloud! This also requires the 'voices' that go with it, and at an average of around 550-600 MB per voice, needless to say these are sym-linked externally..!

5 assorted voices runs out to around 2.5 GB of data. (*Ouch!*) Normally, you'd be expected to pay for these, but I was lucky enough to find a source for these a year or so back, when mouldy put me onto this... The app itself, however, is actually pretty small at something like only 28-30 MB.

The other two are Mooi-tech's PhotoScape, which was never built that way.....and Adobe's Photoshop CS2. ('Nuff said, really....)

Mike, which voices are you using? Believe it or not, I still use the old Lernout & Hauspie SAPI4 US TruVoice (Mike). I use 2nd Speech Center and over the years I have made lots of effort with pronunciation corrections for the said voice (about 2000 I believe). This is a human voice and does perform quite well for me with all the corrections, etc. Actually a remarkable piece of software given the fact that the voice installation file is just short of 1MB (998KB to be precise)!!! Shocked

@ Nic:-

Some of what I'm using are SAPI4, some are AT&T. The only one I can really get on with is a NeoSpeech voice...."Kate", I believe. I may in fact dump the AT&Ts; they're the ones that are huge, and I don't really use them, now that I've found my preferred one.

The only thing I don't like about the SAPI4s is that to my mind they just don't sound right, regardless of how much you tweak them.

Mike,

I will have to internalize the procedure to change a folder's permissions. I see that my having failed to do that now leads me onto circuitous paths whose inefficiency requires far more effort than learning a new routine. Rolling Eyes

I'm actually using the Peter voice. Mike is one of those crappy microsoft robotic voices.
