Text to Speech Converter is a Windows-based application developed by Piston Software. This program is pretty simple and has only 2 main functions. This program allows users to convert written text into speech; it is also possible to save converted speech as MP3 audio files. The files are saved with the bit rate of 64 Kbit/sec. The program can even split big speech files.
The program has a very user-friendly interface, which allows users to start working with it without spending much time examining all the available buttons. If you want this application to read aloud any text, you just need to select the text and press Ctrl+F12. You can select one of two voices supplied with the program. You can change the keys combination in the program's options window. The quality of the reading is satisfactory, though it could be better, especially in terms of intonation.
The trial version has a limitation in that it only speaks and converts 200 words. You can buy the full version of the product on the web site of the developer, as well as by using the direct link provided in the starting window.
