Windows Application to easily create audiobooks (mp3 format) from .Pdf or .txt files. There are 3 parts to this torrent.
1. The "setup" file will install the program wherever you want it, and put drop target (in the form of icons) on your desktop.
2. The ".rar" file contains the same files, but you will have to create the drop targets.
3. The extras folder contains the windows sapi4 setup files. (I included these because sapi5 sucks for novel reading.)
If you want to adjust the read settings, go to the "files" directory inside the installation directory. run "balabolka.exe" (that is the program that does the actual reading) you can set the speed, voices and pronunciation from there.
The programs in this application were gathered from across the internet and, to the best of my knowledge, are all freeware.
The programs include:
PDFTOTEXT.exe (don't remember where I got this)
FART.exe (tee hee hee. Find And Replace Text)
BALABOLKA.exe (awesome app)
LAME.exe (this app rocks!)
Windows SAPI4 files (Windoze, meh.)
My contribution to the mix:
PDFBOOK.bat (ties all the programs together to produce the desired output)
READ.bat (invokes balabolka to read a file)
Install file compiled using:
No crack or serial needed, as the whole thing is assembled from freeware.
You may need to install the SAPI4 files for the program to work correctly, but try it without first.
