    "Best of the free voice programs"

    April 29, 2013  |   By issachar5

    Version: SmartRead 0.80

    Pros

    able to fill a screen with VERY large letters (for seniors)
    Able to hear Microsoft Annie, a good, free voice, plus others
    Able to paste in just about any PDF, WORD, etc. text
    Works with Dragon Naturally Speaking installed (unlike HAL)
    Hi-lites sentences for easy follow on a screen
    Works with Vista and Windows 7 easily
    VERY easy to use

    Cons

    It doesn't appear that you can add any of the tru-voice, or AT&T natural voices.

    Summary

    I compared it with many voice programs; except for the lack of tru-voice adding ability, it pretty much beat the free, and the costly.

    "Smart read"

    April 30, 2008  |   By sukumar14

    Version: SmartRead 0.80

    Pros

    Surprising that its s/w compatibility is good except for one reason that at time of installation it will ask for permission several times and a location to extract files twice !! Its so simple and contains all; that is required to a user. Plus, its free !!! It has an option to download additional voices which may not work on new o/s.

    Cons

    Its development is in initial stage. After installation, sam, mike and mary like voices may not work on new o/s.
