Recently, I showed you how to write a simple VBScript that takes input by text converts it into speech.this script proved to be quite popular and attracted over 180,000 visitors.

Windows Guides reader Harry was inspired by this post and kindly made a tool for all Windows Guides readers. This tool performs the same functions as the original script provided but also gives you a nice graphical user interface to work with when you want your computer to speak back to you. Having your computer speech you can be a lot of fun and now this tool is available to all readers to play around with. In some parts of the world, it still April Fools’ Day– maybe you can think of some fun things you can do with this nifty little program.

You can download this tool for free below:

    Calvin is right, Vista have a hige problem with the text to speech. It can only speak in english. Even if your systems is in another language for some bizarre reason microsoft just put a female english voice for text to speech. So if your write something in spanish or french it will speak like an american spring breaker trying to speak in another language.

    I hope Microsoft fix this on Windows 7
