Text Reader

Version: 1.2.1 || Release Date: 2006-12-25 || License: Freeware Developer: codepoetry | App Owner: ahknight

All I wanted was a program that took a text file and saved it to an audio file for my iPod. All I could find were programs I had to pay for to do this simple task that can be accomplished in one line of AppleScript. That’s silly. So, I wrote a very simple program to do this and more.

More? It can optionally (as of 1.1) tell iTunes to import and convert the file into its own playlist, letting you set the author and genre. It’s also a very simple plain-text editor as well. No more waiting for BBEdit to kick up or worrying that Text Edit will save an RTF file instead.

As of 1.2, you can also change the rate and pitch of the speech as it’s saved (does not affect playback in the GUI).
