Usage

Installation
Just extract archive and run.

Uninstallation
Just delete my .exe

Known Issues
It is not the easiest part to figure out best settings for your system.
Program is not made to be run from protected folder. (This only affect the speak ability since it write a file.)

How to get early access
Private Message me your Bing App Id and you will receive a personalized version. <- If you having worries about that, message your opinion in here. I can take criticm  :Thmbsup: (my opinion = it should be a DonationCoder exclusive aslong testphase is not finished)
If you spread the .exe, it is your Bing App Id that might take damage.
Follow those instructions to get a Bing App Id for free.

When is public release planned
When I do feel safe enough to have most bugs terminated.
For now program work if you use it correct.
I am on to make it as stable as possible and auto-correct user made errors. (example, enter text in number fields, or not text at all.


I have added now two audio samples. Both say same text, but only one sound correct :-]

Things that i want to have done before public version will be released.

Todo List
  • have basic features working
  • add full unicode support
  • block usermade errors or
  • jump with cursor to let user fix that
  • implement "translate-before-speak it" feature
  • either activate Bing App Id edit box or have a dialog pop up on first start....
  • implement configuration file handling
  • adjust "speak it" audio file location
  • implement "bright" and "dark" theme
  • maybe plan to save "speak it" files...
  • stop application on server errors
  • exchange short country names to long
  • things that i have forgot to mention right now

Feel free to suggest me more.
