Dear GOTD users,
there seems to be some problem on the developers side and we've already reported the problem.

We hope the problem will be fixed soon or the offer will be repeated.

We are really sorry for the inconvenience!

Good natural sounding voice at a good reading speed.

I don't understand where the special features are that others are talking about unless it has been removed due ro errors.

It's simple and does the job remarkably well.

I wish it had the facility for multiple voices to tailor it's use to specific circumstances.

I don't get why it reduces to the system tray when closed as there seems to be no practical use and clicking on the product home page takes you to a completely different product with no apparent mention of this one, so it seems to be a subtle form of clickbait advertising.

There is some scope for further development in this product but based upon the way that the actual promotion is for something else, I can't see it, which is a shame on more than one level.

It's not great marketing though as it breeds suspicion.

This works quite well with a nice sounding voice.
The secret features go to 404!

peter, the secret features spell page is secret that's why it can't be found LOL the product home page is a secret too as well as the buy page... it's all secret....you have to disable all the blue wavelength light sources in your house and wear rose tinted glasses to see the secret pages.

Thanks

This ReadTrix is a wonderful TOOL.

We can use it with other TOOLS to accomplish tasks that this TOOL cannot accomplish on it's own.

For example,

-- this does not read text elsewhere but only what has been cut and pasted into it's own little window ( my Amazon Kindle reads anything I publish to it in readable form, including existing books of any length ).

-- this does not scroll as it reads ( my Amazon Kindle does, turning the page for me, letting me read as it vocalizes the words, a terrific help in maintaining consistent progress through a complex and lengthy book ),

-- this does not record the audio ( neither does my Amazon Kindle ).

But with a separate screen audio recorder software, or speaker-out recorder, it should be possible to past book text ( or other text ) into this and create audio files to listen to later - arduous, but workable.

If we want to hear our own writing, such as a business proposal or public presentation, or a broadcast email we are planning to send, or our letter to the editor, coming back at us in a different voice?

This can be a powerful and critical editing assistant, letting us review our own words from a different perspective that we would not otherwise have taken advantage of.

- - - - - - - - - -

There's an 80/20 rule in unfinished works such as these ... 80% of the work is still needed to make this readily useful.

Like my Amazon Kindle, the reading is expressionless:

-- does not know to raise the voice pitch at the end of a question ( it does not read ahead to see the question mark coming ).

-- does not know to pause at line breaks regardless of punctuation, such as reading all in one stream "chapter one she saw the fire on the horizon ..." and so on, there should be a pause at the line breaks, even without punctuation, "chapter one ... [ pause ] ... she saw the fire on the horizon ..."

-- does not have alternative voices ( let alone accents ! ),

-- does not have speed control ... note, when eventually implemented, be careful of just changing speed without maintaining pitch and maintaining the meanings of pauses, and not making the reader voice seem breathless - it is exhausting to listen to someone read who does not ever ever ever pause to take a breath! As a listener, I get panicked and imagine the reader voice keeling over and dying! We must hear pauses for inhaling! But the ability to slow the reading down would be nice, too, with adjustable pauses between sentences, for us to be able to better think and consider what is being presented, there are many subtle and necessary variables to successful vocalized communication.

-- reading anything thrown at it would be a challenge, such as applications for the blind, reading what order of open windows on a complex multi-program display screen or screens, and when to stop and interact, and how to act on voice inputs from the audience, just yes or no, or more complex speech, and then we get into voice recognition software where "how to recognize speech" gets interpreted as "how to wreck a nice beach", good luck with that.

-- translating between what language the text is in, and what language is spoken by the reading voice?

-- context, I pasted the description and it read "resume" as "résumé" "... Pause and résumé playback at will ..." - ooops!

- - - - - - - - - -

So I look forward to evolutions of this software, and I wish the developer great good luck ... and especially legal great good luck, see below.

- - - - - - - - - -

Aside: I do notice the sudden unexplained cessation of complaints like "... How can this even be legal given DMCA restrictions on repurposing other people's copyright works ? ! ? ..." - seriously, this is okay for you copyright-complainers, but yesterday's Audials is not? C'mon, folks, recognize the reality of TOOLS not being actions in and of themselves, it depends on what you do with them, and the reality is that in our own home, we can do what we want with anything that we've got.

After installation and registration, I am invited to click on the program icon to discover new options.
First click on "hidden features" leads straight to a 404 error page! The same when i tried to share by copying and pasting the given link. From the second click, a window opens and asks "Enter your spell" ???

It seems that the reading in a language other than the PC language is imperfect (because of the accent).
Too bad we can't save the audio file.... the program becomes useless to me!

Installed it. It did not work. Tried to uninstall through Ccleaner. It did not uninstall. Tried to uninstall using 'remove program'. But it is not possible to remove this program from my computer.

AP Channela, try going to Users/AppData/Local and removing the folder.

Need a program like this; then use "Balabolka" no more needs to be said.

Reply   |   Comment by SFL  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+32)

SFL, I recently sought similar programs to replace my firefox add-on foxvox I found "Read Aloud A Text to Speech Voice Reader"witch preformed poorly by comparison (it did preform better on other web browsers )Thank You for the recommendation I will give this one a try and balabolka

Reply   |   Comment by MOV  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

SFL, I also used Balabolka with other systems and it is a good program but does not work on Windows 64bit OS (neither Read Aloud), any thoughts?

Reply   |   Comment by Man  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Interesting since I'm using it on Win 10 64bit 8 Core system with no issues.

Reply   |   Comment by SFL  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+5)

SFL, Interesting too, I'm going to have to take a look under the hood of my machine then and see what's going on, thanks.

Reply   |   Comment by Man  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

MOV, Not a fan of either, however of the two balabolka is the winner in my opinion (not a fan of ReadTrix logo either)I do most of my TTS online so browser integration is a must for me

Reply   |   Comment by MOV  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

Can you recommend to me a different logo or name of the app.

My idea was that it will be good to be some cute Frankenstein reading with a robotic voice

Reply   |   Comment by Daniel Georgiev  –  Last year  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Daniel Georgiev, Reading to me invokes the ideal of intelligence a robot would be good, for the most part Frankenstein does not convey intelligence or cute(I'm not criticizing the image itself I just don't think it fits for a TTS logo)a robotic voice would be a great novelty

I did not dive in real deep and tweak any settings and think it uses installed voices already on my pc you should integrate a tweaked(robotic) voice and a button to toggle native installed voice(already on computer)and the robot voice

A name should have meaning , purpose ,ownership or intent in my opinion. It has "read" in the name so with the before mentioned criteria you should use creator's privilege and expand on it (I could give you a name but thank giving the structure to create a name is better as you are a creator and will need it in the future)

Thank You for requesting my opinion I hope it was helpful

P.S. to Daniel Georgiev the uninstaller needs an over-hall. After trying ReadTrix for a short time I discovered windows uninstaller ineffective I manually removed the folder

Hold up everyone this programme will not read it back to you and I checked the website and it only go'es to their iris website and has no info on this programme. I think it is a fake.

I have done everything it said and I pasted some text on it and it did nothing when I asked it to read it. No sound and yes my sound is on because just before I put the text on it I stopped the music and up my volume and nothing from the programme.

Even restarted my computer as some programmes require it and still nothing it is a dud. Good luck. If someone does get it to say something please let people here know.

taylor, I installed it on a virtual computer and copied the programme folder C:\Users\gebruikersnaamAppData\Local\ReadTrix to my real computer. I copied the text of your posting and the female voice read it to me. The only error she pronounced 'read' in the sentence ' this programme will not read it back to you' as 'red' instead of 'reed'.
