The software provides no advanced techniques so the user won’t encounter difficulties when using it. All the user needs to do is insert the text that he wants to hear and press Read Document Aloud. It permits reading 3 different documents. One of its main features is the possibility to select the desired adult voice, male or female, with distinct accents. It comes in handy for those that are interested in reading and can’t afford to spend quality time in the world of literature, history and so on and so forth. Listen to favorite articles while doing housework or taking care of children; the text can also be converted into a MP3 or WAV audio file for having the possibility to listen to it at the office, in the car, practically everywhere. The program supports multiple languages such as American English, British English, French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, German, Portuguese and the list keeps going.
Apart from the advantage of listening to texts instead on concentrating on the screen, 2nd Speech Center gathers an Alarm and Reminders. An audio alarm for knowing the exact time, for being round the clock aware of time; the user can set an audio message before and after the alarm and choose whether time, date or both should appear in the message. Everyone tends to pass out of mind things once in a while, so this program has just the solution; be reminded of important events, birthdays and meetings with time and date so rest assured that from now on not a single plan or event will be left apart. Let’s not forget about the possibility to personalize the Interface in the desired way, with Playlist tabs, Hotkeys, Editor and other useful settings.
