CoolSpeaking

Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
Basically a graphical interface for Microsoft's speech engines, CoolSpeaking lacks features that would make it stand out from the competition. Like many similar programs, it can read out loud what you've copied to the clipboard or typed. However, it can only process TXT files (not, for instance, Microsoft Word DOC files) and save speech in one format, WAV. Another flaw is you can't correct the pronunciation of nonstandard words. The straightforward interface has two variants: Compact and Normal. However, all in all, there seems little reason to pay for CoolSpeaking when you can find freeware analogs with the same functionality.
