    "Reasonable tool, but could use refinements."

    August 01, 2014   |   By yonkersron

    Version: Ghost Clipboard Reader 1.7

    Pros

    I really like the read-from-clipboard interface. (This was the strength of Speakonia.) It's really handy for proofreading: just select text from anything - a Word doc, Web page, Frame file, anything - and hit Ctrl-C. The tool reads whatever is in the clipboard.

    Cons

    I compare this to Speakonia because that was my first experience with text-to-speech. Speakonia had a Lexicon feature; the ability to change the way a given word was pronounce. (e.g.: you could teach it to read BTW as "by the way".) This was *very* handy for acronyms, jargon, proper names, etc. This tool doesn't seem to have that. Also, Speakonia could use the voices, "Mary, Sam, & Mike". (I liked Mary better than Anna), and you could adjust the pitch and speed independently. It still sounded a bit mechanical, but I could adjust it to suit my taste. And it was more obvious how to start and stop Speakonia, which I also liked better.

    Summary

    Not a bad tool. I find text-to-speech indispensable for proofreading. With a few added refinements, I'd be happy pay for a tool like this.
