If you use SIV -NOSIVREG or run SIV from a CD/DVD/USB Drive it will not write to the registry. Look at the [About] page which says:
-NOSIVREG Do not leave information in the registry (Default is -SIVREG)
Search http://rh-software.com/index_arc.html for -NOSIVREG

From v4.38
Added support for [SIVDEF.ini] which can be used to provide defaults for configuration parameters that are not already present in the registry. By default SIV will save these defaults to the registry unless -NOSIVREG is selected. Note that when SIV is run from a DVD/CD or Removable Drive (USB Flash Drive) -NOSIVREG is the default.

FileOptimizer v6.50.302 Updated

Checker on 15 Apr 2014

FileOptimizer is a file compression tool used to reduce a variety of file types without changing the quality, also known as "lossless" compression. This is done via wide variety of optimization tools and recompression techniques combined into one program. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. Formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, OGV), image (GIF, JPEG, PNG), office formats (DOCX, XLSX, ODT, PDF), and system files (DLL, EXE).

Supports drag-and-drop of files into the window or onto the program icon.

A 64-bit version is available (within the folder) and the author reports the program is functional in WINE.

Category:

Optionally, to save space:
  • 32-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer64.exe and the \Plugins64 folder
  • 64-bit systems: delete FileOptimizer32.exe and the \Plugins32 folder

It seems like, although this program supports all those file types, the parameters seem only to be applicable to swf and gz files. I couldn't figure out how to work this on a jpg file. Anyone got a tip for me?

webfork on 2013-07-14 16:05

BGM: More recent versions have an additional optimization in the options menu (arithmetic encoding) that make the encoded JPEGs incompatible with older viewers.

Neat, but buggy. On some .exe's it will compressed them awesome... by deleting 99% of the file. It did this on my biz card reader software, and IBM social notes software (I'm sure you can Google them to try it out). Also, on some files the percentages listed were way off. The file size was correct, but not the compression ration.

DSpeech v1.58.6 Updated

Checker on 15 Apr 2014
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Suggested by AlephX

DSpeech is a text-to-speech program with the option of saving the output to a variety of formats, great for creating audio books from text sources. It also supports dynamically changing the features of the voices eg. insert pauses, emphasize specific words, spell them out etc. using tags.

The program can import text from TXT, DOC, DOCX, RTF, HTML, XML, and PDF and output to MP3, OGG, AAC, WMA.

DSpeech works out-of-the-box on WinXP and above because the Microsoft speech engine SAPI5 is included by default. For WinNT/2K, you will need to install the speech engine separately. You will find links to plugins, speech engines and voice sets on the program website.

  • Reduced the minimum possible time to transition from one line to another.
  • Added the possibility to open PDF files, remove automatic page numbers and the title of the text that often finds himself soon after and, while reading, is an annoying interruption as insistent.
  • Removed options to keep the physical size of the original PDF file (practically useless, if not harmful).
  • Added the ability to automatically save the settings every 15 minutes (it may be useful to save the sign of the point at which we have arrived while you are reading a text in the event of a power failure).
  • Now the automatic selection of the words as they are spoken works perfectly even if you specify to use a different voice for text in quotes (so far the entire line was selected instead of single word).
  • Now DSpeech keeps track of the state of the window (maximized or not) and restores it at the next reboot.
  • Now the # DO - LOOP # allows, if desired, to limit the number of loops to the desired value, for example, if you want the cycle is repeated 4 times, you will have to write " LOOP # 4".
  • Added the possibility to choose the symbol or set of symbols that precede the keywords making them recognizable as such (by default, this symbol is the pound).
  • Minor fixes and changes.
