Well this has been here a very long time, this program has worked fine for my uses.I was looking for an older version from the website I found in Japanese, the problem was many of the Japanese words are spelled wrong which changes the meaning. :D

Useful small footprint PDF splitting tool.

Only would wish for slightly more specific changelogs, beside the usual, non-descript
"fixed some bugs"...;-)

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 e.g. insert pauses, emphasize specific words, spell them out etc. using tags.

Balabolka v2.12.0.661 Updated

billon on 20 Jun 2018
  • 15MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 20 Jun 2018
  • 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 Microsoft's own Speech API 4 and 5, but lets you fine tune various voice parameters, 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.

Balabolka can also save the 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).

Also 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.

@Checker:
I did something far better.
I uninstalled the flawed ver. 2.10.0.572 portable and installed desktop ver. 2.9.0.565 of Balabolka. My Avast AV doesn't complain anymore.

smaragdus on 2014-08-31 01:36

Balabolka 2.10.0.573 released.

FileOptimizer v12.90 Updated

billon on 19 Jun 2018
  • 194MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 19 Jun 2018
  • 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 long list of 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.

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10 / Wine
Writes settings to: Application folder
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: GNU AGPL
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).

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

DocFetcher v1.1.21 Updated

billon on 22 Jun 2018
  • 51MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Jun 2018
  • Suggested by vixay

DocFetcher indexes your computer, making the contents of a wide variety of files instantly searchable. Selecting a search result shows a preview of the file with text highlighted and without formatting. You can filter results by location, file type, minimum and/or maximum filesize and more. The program can index Microsoft Office, OpenOffice/LibreOffice, PDF, RTF, EPUB, HTML and more formats from drives, external volumes, archive files and Outlook .OST and .PST files.

Cross-platform and functional on OS X and Linux. Functional on 64-bit Windows.

Note: DocFetcher requires that you add folders/drives that you want to view before searching. See the "Basic Usage" section of the homepage for a few intro steps. When adding to the search scope, make sure to check "Store relative paths if possible"

Category:
System Requirements: WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10
Writes settings to: Application folder
Dependencies: Java Runtime Environment 1.7 or higher, see forum for use with Java Portable.
Stealth: ? Yes
Unicode support: Yes
License: Eclipse Public License
How to extract: Download the "portable" ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch DocFetcher.exe.

If you see a memory error (very rare): either reduce the size/number of files indexed or do the following (64-bit Java only):
  1. In a text editor, edit misc\DocFetcher.bat so that the last line reads -Xmx4096m
  2. Move this file to the main folder
  3. Save and launch DocFetcher.bat, ignoring DocFetcher.exe from now on

Tremendous search program that has saved me again and again, finding files and content that other programs miss. Each version seems to add to the pile of file formats it can index. As a result, it's on every machine I own and some I don't.

MoisheP on 2018-06-17 01:13

DocFetcher indexes many formats, such as LibreOffice documents, that Microsoft Search (aka Cortana) does not, or does incompletely. It also uses far less CPU time, once the initial indexing is completed, than MS. DocFetcher also runs on Linux. Results can be sorted by likelihood of match, as well as filename, type, date etc. Only downside is that it requires Java.
