TEFview is a Viewer for TablEdit tablature files (.TEF format).
View songs that are available from the internet in TablEdit file format on your computer screen. Hear the songs the way the author intended to have them heard, at any speed. Loop sections of songs, or even entire songs so that you can get the most out of your practice time. Print the songs out so that you can have them handy in your gig bag, instrument case, or even in a binder for easy reference when you are away from your computer.
It works well for viewing, playing, and printing tablature files that are in TablEdit format. And it's free!
The anti-virus program Avast! won't let you install it; it's a false positive hit so you have to either disable Avast! altogether or jump through some hoops to exclude TEFView from the Avast! nasties list.
I found out about this on banjo hangout (www.banjohangout.org). They have lots of tablature files in the format for TEFView. Try it; you might just find it to be the coolest freeware of the week!
I found it very easy to figure out and use, with a minimum of help. I use it for writing(slowly!) tab and deciphering tabs found on the 'net - the sound repro although basic is helpful, as is the ability to slow/speed up, print or record.
