DSpeech [3.6 MB] Win XP - Win 10   Freeware

DSpeech is a text to speech program designed to read written text aloud as well as also choosing sentences to be pronounced based on your vocal answers.

It is designed to be simple but practical and includes an ASR (Automatic Speech Recognition) functionality which comes fully integrated. You have the option to save the output as WAV, MP3, AAC, WMA or OGG formats as well as a quick selection of different voices, the ability to combine them or juxtapose them to build dialogues between different voice outputs. DSpeech integrates a vocal recognition system that, through a simple script language, will permit the creation of interactive dialogues with the user. And it can also allow you to configure the voices independently including full compatibility with most vocal engines that are SAPI 4-5 compliant.

DSpeech will also permit you to change the features of the voices dynamically during the playback (speed, volume, and frequency), to insert pauses, emphasize particular words, or even to spell them out. You can additionally set up the sound quality and specific hardware for recording and will allow you to capture and reproduce the content from the ClipBoard.

Win10 BrightnessSlider [84 KB] Win 7 - Win 10   Open Source

Win10_BrightnessSlider places an icon in your taskbar to quickly change your monitor brightness anytime.

If you find yourself changing screen brightness frequently and are looking for a free, portable, unobtrusive app, then look no further. Just run Win10BrightnessSlider.exe, and you'll be able to click the tray icon and drag the slider from 0-100% brightness. Otherwise, you can exit or run at startup. That's about it.

We did run into an unhandled exception that appears to be related to Microsoft .Net so be sure you have the latest Microsoft .Net installed. Otherwise, click on continue and the app will work fine.
