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.

  • Suggested by guinness

WebBrowserPassView is a password recovery tool that reveals the passwords stored by Internet Explorer (Version 4.0 - 11.0), Mozilla Firefox (All Versions), Google Chrome, Chromium, Safari, Opera and SeaMonkey. This tool can be used to recover your lost/forgotten password of any website, including popular Web sites, like Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and GMail, as long as the password is stored by your Web Browser.

Currently, WebBrowserPassView cannot retrieve the passwords if they are encrypted with a master password.

To work with Chrome and Opera portable versions, go to 'options' and set the location of the portable browser folder. Select the user data folder in Chrome, and wand.dat for Opera. (Thanks to user "deer".)

@Fred, I use Safarp to remove Java updates all the time.

Try "Remove (quiet mode)"; works great.

webfork on 2011-09-30 21:00

I generally use Revo (http://www.portablefreeware.com/index.php?id=1398) to make sure files are removed but to get multiple programs off quickly, I use FreeUninstaller (http://www.portablefreeware.com/?id=1350), which has a local and online search, use frequency, website, and other features.

Universal Extractor v1.6.1

webfork on 8 Nov 2014

Universal Extractor allows you to extract files from a wide variety of archive files, including ZIP, ARJ, LZH, as well as MSI and EXE files created using various installer packages (such as Nullsoft, Wise, Inno Setup, etc). Useful for testing apps for portability because you can extract files directly from installer packages without having to go through the installation process. Note that the original developer no longer updates the program so some manual updates may be required.

Alternatively, an unofficial version with the latest-and-greatest internals is available (on Lupo's PenSuite site).

Commercial use note: license restrictions are present on included files UHARC02.EXE and UHARC04.EXE, but can be deleted without dramatic impact on the software. See website for more information.

It's a bit OTT calling this an universal extractor, as many EXE files I try to extract with it, leads to error messages that the so-scalled universal extractor can't extract them.

Numanoid on 2014-11-01 14:32

This programme is in fact pretty much useless, there hasn't been one exe I have tried to extract over the last couple of months, where the so-called Universal Extractor has failed me :-(

great program. i wish it can select the port (like 5353 etc) to defeat ISP's hijacking.

bzl333 - Try QuickSetDNS or Public DNS Server Tool and see if they offer such functionality. Both are listed in the Similar/alternative apps section above. I haven't tested either program to see if it matches your needs though.
