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.

The program works out-of-the-box on WinXP and above, using the included Microsoft speech engine SAPI5. 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.

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

PEstudio v8.61 released 22-JUL-2017

Version 8.61 changelog:
. Increase performance when loading executable with large collection of exports
. Consolidate switches in settings.xml
. Consolidate API classification
. Fix a bug when handling the Thread-Local Storage (TLS)
. Fix a bug of the Manifest View
. Fix a bug when detecting 64-bit managed files
. Add online check of update in the "About" dialog
. Add support for ARM detection

Unfortunately, the command line prompt usage "pestudio -file: typical.exe"....is broken again in v8.61,
an annoyingly recurring problem also marring former versions v7.52 / v8.13 / v8.52

Developer has been notified.

Gratefully, the CLI prompt has consented to behave decently once again,
(and forever after? - fingers crossed...)

Thanks Marc ...;-)

PDF-XChange Viewer v2.5.322.7 Updated

  • 20MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 11 Aug 2017
  • Suggested by Myles

PDF-XChange Viewer is a feature-rich program that displays multiple PDF documents within a tabbed interface. Edit features include the ability to rotate documents, add comments/annotations to any PDF file, apply custom stamps from any image/PDF file/Windows clipboard, mark-up pages with text and objects, and type directly on any PDF page in "Typewriter" mode. The program supports exporting to BMP/JPEG/TIFF/PNG etc., or extracting text from a PDF page/file. Additional features include capturing the document with the snapshot tool (copies an area to clipboard), measuring tools for distance, area and perimeter, and more. A recommended picture-to-text OCR plugin is available (thanks Bruce) as is a PDF help file.

Reported as functional on Mac/Linux under WINE. Alternatively, PDF-XChange Viewer Portable adjusts paths, with an OCR plugin and help file available from the website as separate downloads.

Note:

  • The free PDF-XChange Viewer lacks some features present in the registered version (payware) and, while some "Pro" features can still be used, they'll add a watermark to the document edited upon saving
  • For 64-bit, see forum post

@zorro:
I updated my default PDF viewer (PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.320) today. Tracker Software still updates the Viewer.
Why don't I use the PDF-XChange Editor? Simple, I need a PDF viewer, not an editor.

PAFuser on 2017-06-30 15:11

Mixture is correct. Only need as viewer with able to add text comment (download utility bills and mark date paid, less paper stored).

@MIKLO - I fully agree it would be better if the jpg's were in the application folder, however they are not really hidden. In the current release the folder where the jpg's are stored can be easily opened and worked with under OPTIONS -> Open Temporary Folder. Hope this helps.

Emka on 2017-08-12 06:25

Can't you disable it saving temporary files in the options?

opsimathic on 2017-08-12 08:51

@Emka - The first item under OPTIONS look like you can set the utility to delete the jpgs when you exit the program. I have never been very sure the program actually does what it says, so I simply use the second item in OPTIONS to check and delete as necessary. Periodically I use the jpg instead the pdf so I actually find this useful. Bottom line is that I wish the author would clean all this up a bit more, but I find the utility so useful (use it every day almost) that I am prepared to work around the idiosyncrasies.
