NirCmd Command Reference - speak
speak [type] [text/Filename] {rate} {volume} {.wav Output Filename} {Output Format}

The {rate} parameter is optional parameter that you can specify the Speech rate, a value between -10 (very slow) and 10 (very fast). The {volume} parameter is optional parameter that you can specify the volume of the Speech, a value between 0 and 100.

Examples:
speak text ~$clipboard$
speak text "Please visit the Web site of NirSoft at http://www.nirsoft.net" 2 80
speak file "c:\temp\speak1.txt"
speak file "c:\temp\speak1.txt" 0 100 "c:\temp\speak.wav" 48kHz16BitStereo
So, I think:
  • speak text ~$clipboard$ -10
    would be very slow;
  • speak text ~$clipboard$ 10
    would be very fast.
I think I used this nircmd command as an example in my BrightVolHKs and DateWriteHKs ini-files and "2" was a good middle value.

I think:
  • speak text ~$clipboard$ 2 80
    would be at a good speed and at 80% volume;
  • speak text ~$clipboard$ -5 90
    would be pretty slow and at 90% volume.
