TinyClipToSpeech v 1.0.0.9

Read Clipboard Text Content using Sapi Voice

20140126213814.png


Access to all commands by Tray menu.

If you doesn't have Sapi5 installed, script ask for download it.
I know there is already some Text to speech scripts,
but i wanted an easy access ( clipboard content and tray menu )
and the possibility to change voice and settings while reading.
Text can be displayed on desktop gradually as what is read.
You can also save text to mp3 without need of read it.
My preference goes to Scansoft voices, easy to found and install and with a good pronunciation qualty.

As usual, some externals files are downloaded at first execution.

Previous downloads : 199

Update of 2012-07-01

Source : TinyClipToSpeech v 1.0.0.9.au3

ExecutableTinyClipToSpeech.exe.html

(Once this html file downloaded, double click on it for start the download)

Hope you like it ! :)

Hi Wakillon

My PC is speaking in portuguese :thumbsup: Great! Thanks for sharing!

It´s win7, 64 bits...

I have some extra questions/points:

1- at start, your program tries to write in registry. Do you know why? I didn´t allow but it worked OK.

2- option "open ...panel" opens no window

3- you told "...and the possibility to change voice and settings while reading ...". I too. There are any "commands" whe can insert at text to control speech?

I found Loquendo at least in protuguese has a much better speech. Probably in other languages too, it´s more natural.

If you want, give a try live at http://www.oddcast.com/home/demos/tts/tts_example.php?sitepal

Do you believe that your program would work with Loquendo?

Thanks

Jose

HI joseLB

RegWrite with EnableBalloonTips key is for enable traytip display.

It seems the reg key i use for get sapi.cpl path doesn't exists on x64, so you can replace _OpenSpeechProperties function by this one :

Func _OpenSpeechProperties ( )    
    TrayItemSetState ( $_SpeechItem, $TRAY_UNCHECKED )
    Local $_SapiCplPath = RegRead ( 'HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Control Panel\Cpls', 'Speech' )
    If FileExists ( $_SapiCplPath ) Then
        ShellExecute ( $_SapiCplPath )
        Return
    EndIf
    If StringInStr ( @OSArch, 64 ) Then ShellExecute ( @WindowsDir & '\SysWOW64\Speech\SpeechUX\sapi.cpl' )
EndFunc ;==> _OpenSpeechProperties ( )

i have tried text to speech of oddcast.com and the Loquendo Démo TTS Interactive and you are right, voices ( french for me ) are better.

But oddcast is based on Flash and Loquendo returns wav files, so no chances to get it working with my script !

Thanks. ;)

Hi wakillon

I´m starting to use your code... it´s a great contribution, thanks

But as always, we need something else...

Do you know how I can know when it finish the talk? I mean, I don´t want to sotp waiting it to finish, but from time to time "ask" if it finished the talk?

second, what about to do an UDF with these functions?

Thanks

Jose

Hi joseLB :)

You can do like this for ask if it finished to talk.

If $ospeech.Status.RunningState = $SRSEIsSpeaking Then
    ; is talking
Else
    ; is not talking
EndIf

And If i remember well there is already several Udf for sapi voice ! ;)

      Programs like Ditto are a great augmentation to the Windows clipboard where it keeps a list of items you copy and paste and you can go back to days, weeks, months later. It also comes in handy for multiple copied items you need to paste over and over again.
      https://sourceforge.net/projects/ditto-cp/
      Windows 10 also now has a clipboard history capability (though not as robust, I think, as Ditto).
      https://www.windowscentral.com/how-use-new-clipboard-windows-10-october-2018-update
      I would like to simulate this type of clipboard history into my own apps independent of Windows' clipboard, but I haven't a clue as to where to begin.
      Thank you in advance for any suggestions, examples, shelved codes. ☺

      I'm creating a tool which automatically saves screenshots.  I've found that some images appear corrupt after saving.  I've narrowed the source down to screenshots taken from within an RDP session via the Ctrl+Alt+Plus (PrtScn equivalent) and Ctrl+Alt+Minus (Alt+PrtScn equivalent) key combos.
      Here is the example code:
      #include <ClipBoard.au3> #include <GDIPlus.au3> If _ClipBoard_IsFormatAvailable($CF_BITMAP) Then ConsoleWrite("+Bitmap found on Clipboard" & @CRLF) If Not _ClipBoard_Open(0) Then MsgBox(16, "Error", "_ClipBoard_Open failed") Exit EndIf $hClipboardImage = _ClipBoard_GetDataEx($CF_BITMAP) _ClipBoard_Close() _GDIPlus_Startup() $hBitmap = _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromHBITMAP($hClipboardImage) $sCLSID = _GDIPlus_EncodersGetCLSID("JPG") _GDIPlus_ImageSaveToFileEx($hBitmap, @ScriptDir & "\" & TimerInit() & "_Clipboard_Image.jpg", $sCLSID, 0) _GDIPlus_BitmapDispose($hBitmap) _GDIPlus_Shutdown() Else MsgBox(48, @ScriptName, "No Bitmap found on Clipboard") EndIf If you copy a local window to the clipboard via Alt+PrtScn the above works fine.  If you copy a window in an RDP session via Ctrl+Alt+Minus it saves the image, but the left-hand edge appears to contain a few pixels sliced off the right-hand side of the bitmap (see two attached images for examples; one good, one bad).  If you paste directly into MSPaint, the image appears correctly, so the clipboard contents is good. It seems to be the process of converting the bitmap handle to an image file via GDIPlus which corrupts it (though I may be wrong about this).
      I've tried inspecting the contents of the clipboard via the _ClipBoard_EnumFormats example and I've noticed the clipboard from the RDP session contains a couple more formats;
      Local:
      Clipboard formats ..: 3 Clipboard format 1 .: Bitmap Clipboard format 2 .: DIB Clipboard format 3 .: DIB V5 RDP:
      Clipboard formats ..: 5 Clipboard format 1 .: DataObject Clipboard format 2 .: DIB Clipboard format 3 .: DIB V5 Clipboard format 4 .: Ole Private Data Clipboard format 5 .: Bitmap However the _ClipBoard_GetDataEx function is specifying the $CF_BITMAP constant for the format, which both instances contain, so I'm not sure the extra formats have any impact?
      I've tried using a combination of _ClipBoard_GetDataEx($CF_DIB) and _GDIPlus_BitmapCreateFromMemory in an effort to write the binary directly to a file, instead of using a bitmap handle, however this doesn't appear to work and just returns a zero and doesn't set @error to anything, which isn't covered in the help file (a failure should return a zero and set the @error level to something).
      I've hunted around the forums and tried everything I can think of. I can normally figure most things out without posting but I've been dipping in and out of this script for a few months now and have finally thrown in the towel and must ask you guys for help, which isn't a decision I take lightly.  Your help is, as always, greatly appreciated.

      I want to copy just the selected text in an input control and put it to the clipboard, but GuiCtrlRead() always reads all of the text in the control.
      In this test code, when I highlight a  portion of the left control's text and press ^C, I want to copy just that text to the clipboard; but when I highlight a  portion of the right control's text and press ^C, I want to copy all of its text to the clipboard.

       Hello all"
      I have curious problem with com object implementation of Sapi 5.1.
      In some cases }Some Voice engines] the metods for retrieve the voice parameters fails with error :Member not exists:.
      But the Retrieved Voice object can speak the given text, so It exists and work.
      Example of this type of Engine can be this one: http://download.kobavision.be/KobaSpeech3/KobaSpeech 3 With Vocalizer Serena - English (Great Britain).exe (can work as demo)
      So my question is> Is there some way to workaround or solve this issue?
      What i tryed:
      1. Typical use of Sapi.spvoice object:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
       
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $voice in $spvoice.getvoices()
        msgbox(0, "Voice", $voice.getdescription())
      next
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)
      SetError(1)
      Endfunc

      2. Implement workaround based on Nvda Screen reader sapi5 Library at https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda/blob/master/source/synthDrivers/sapi5.py
      Thys code in Pascal should work, so i tryed to reproduce it in Autoit.
      Pascal code just as example:
                   SOTokens:=SpVoice.GetVoices('','');
                   for i:=0 to SOTokens.Count-1 do
                   try
                        SOToken:=SOTokens.Item(I); s:=SOToken.GetDescription(0);
      end
      In Autoit I tryed it like this:
      $oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc"); Install a custom error handler
        $spvoice = ObjCreate("sapi.spvoice")
      for $i = 0 to $spvoice.getvoices.count-1
      $name = $spvoice.getvoices.item($i).getdescription
      msgbox(0,"Voice", $name)
      next
      Func MyErrFunc()
      $HexNumber = hex($oMyError.number, 8)
      Msgbox(0,"","We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF &"Number is: " & $HexNumber & @CRLF &"Windescription is: " & $oMyError.windescription)
      SetError(1)
      Endfunc
      Both of this methods returning same Error ("Member not exists.").
      Thanks a lot for help.
