Simple TTS Reader is a small clipboard reader. Simply copy any text, and it will be read aloud using text-to-speech technology. You can choose any installed speech engine, e.g. Microsoft Anna. This text-to-speech utility can also be minimized to tray. And it's free. And easy to use.
Simple TTS Reader is an alternative to such applications and utilities like Sayz Me, Speakonia, Ultra Hal Text-to-Speech Reader and others. Simple TTS Reader supports modern operating systems (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8), doesn't tweak your system settings, 100% free and open-source.
In other words, Simple TTS Reader is the best software for unleashing your Windows PC's text-to-speech power.
