Extract with 7-zip 16.04 (.paf.exe), but run Mp3tag without add folder and file named "mp3tag.cfg" is okay, added folder and file named "mp3tag.cfg", Mp3tag show "Access denied"

Balabolka v2.15.0.819 Updated

Ennovy on 11 Jun 2022
  • 15MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 11 Jun 2022
  • Suggested by I am Baas

Balabolka is a feature-rich program to read text aloud from a variety of file types including DOC, RTF, PDF, ODT, FB2 and HTML. The program uses built-in Windows speech tools, but lets you fine tune voices, including rate and pitch, and a substitution list can also be applied to improve the quality of the voice's articulation. The program supports customized font and background color, skins, control reading from the system tray or by the global hotkeys.

The program can save to a variety of audio formats and quality levels, and can include synchronized text to external LRC files or in MP3 tags inside the audio files. When the audio file is played with players on a computer or on modern digital audio players, the text will be displayed synchronously (in the same way as lyrics for songs).

The program includes batch conversion tools from of a wide variety of document formats to audio or plain text and a file compare tool, file splitter and screen magnification window. Command-line functions also supported.

After years of using to use Balabolka I officaly gave up and bought textaloud a couple days ago.

Balabolka has for years had a strange bug where the longer it runs in the background the longer the delay it takes when you hit the "read selected text" hotkey.

TextAloud doesn't have this issue and not having to restart Balabolka every hour feels like a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders.

FireRabbit on 2021-10-07 15:38

Since it had been over a year since my last comment and the last time I used Balabolka, and since then I've seen several update notices for it, bought a brand new computer, and moved on to windows 10 I figured I'd give it another try since I really don't like being tied to preparatory software beyond my OS.

Overall it's much worse than I remember. I use text to speech a lot. After using textaloud for over a year daily I've gotten very use to how it sounds and Balabolka is... the best way I can think of to describe it would be jagged and deformed. The pacing of the voices is all wonky, there's too many bizarre out of context pauses, and the ever growing lag is still a major issue. [I use Ivona voices, which is perhaps the issue as Balabolka may be overly focused on just working with Microsofts built in voices?]

@FireRabbit: As Balabolka is somewhat of a niche application, your input is highly appreciated. Thank you.

FileOptimizer v15.80 Updated

Andrew Lee on 9 Jun 2022
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 9 Jun 2022
  • Suggested by I am Baas

FileOptimizer is a broad format file compression tool used to reduce file size without changing the quality, known as "lossless." This is done via wide variety of optimization and recompression tools and techniques. Original files are sent to the recycle bin for restoration in the event the uncompressed version is preferred. A list of the 400+ supported formats include audio/video (MP3, OGG, M4A), 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. Note that by default the program removes metadata for many file types. This information reduces overall file size and protects privacy but is important to some users (e.g. photographers) and file search tools.

A 64-bit version is available within the folder, the author reports the program is functional in WINE, and can be used on the command line. Many images here on TPFC including our logo have been compressed using FileOptimizer.

Category:
Runs on:WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine

How to extract: Download the self-extracting 7z package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch FileOptimizer32.exe or FileOptimizer64.exe (for 64-bit OS).

At startup, the program will optionally show ads to support program development. These can be disabled at any time.

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

That's not portable. I can only get a setup file installing in C: drive.

kilouiski on 2019-09-20 12:09

I just tried to reduce the size of a video and it has left me exactly the same and with either option: fast and the best.
Any explanation?.
Best regards.

webfork on 2019-10-06 22:40

@kilouiski: FileOptimizer exists because so few programs take the time and energy to fully compress your files with available tools. It sounds like the program used to generate your video was an exception.

I agree with User2100. This is a very fast launching player with a very small footprint, but the lack of a time slider is a big issue.

Now at version 1.0.37
