The latest version of Expressivo enables computer users to listen to the content of their incoming mail in MS Outlook and other popular e-mail clients. Ivo Software has launched Expressivo 1.4.3 — the latest version of the software which can read any text with a human voice.
After you install the new Expressivo it integrates with MS Outlook and other e-mail applications adding to them voice functionalities. With Expressivo you can now comfortably listen to e-mails on a computer or save them as sound files and play them later on, e.g. on an iPod. Moreover, a new e-mail monitoring plug-in has been added to tell you that there are new messages in the mail box.
With the new Expressivo you can easily save speech recordings as sound files just by clicking a button in the main window’s toolbar. Users of MP3 players in turn will be happy to find the option of reading out file names — it is enabled in the speech recording settings. When you have enabled it the name of a sound file will be read out before it is played.
And it keeps talking and talking…
Expressivo changes the way you use a number of popular e-mail clients providing you with more comfort. You can more and more frequently just stand up and listen to what you used to have to read on-screen. It is possible to listen to e-mails in MS Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird. Talking Skype will tell you when your friends appear online or will read out text messages received.
Texts from websites can be read out in Internet Explorer and Firefox.
