I use text to speech programs to record station promos for my internet radio broadcasts as either a .wav or .mp3 file. I have used others in the past and on older XP based machines, both are pay programs and worked well. I recently started using a dual core Windows 7 64 bit based unit and the old text to speech programs just would not work properly on it at all. others would completely screw up my sound settings and the speech produced would play at such advanced speeds it was impossible to discern. I discovered Balabolka and read the reviews and downloaded the file from Snap files, installed the program and tested it by typing text and then saving the file as either a .wav or .mp3 file.
Balabolka works perfectly and the features such as translation and spell checking are great. This program has features incorporated that the top text to speech haven't even thought of yet and it's a freeware program. The two Russian programmers that developed this program have got a top notch winner in Balabolka, if only I could shake their hand and thank them personally for creating such a great program. If you have a windows 7 64 bit based machine and use text to speech you've got to have this one on your machine.
