Speakonia is a free, simple, lightweight solution for your basic text-to-speech needs.  It offers dozens of different reading voices (10 by default, with more available for download).  You input your text, Speakonia sends it to a speech engine, and next thing you know the computer is reading it out load back to you!  You just type something in, hit the blue triangle “Play” icon, and voila, your computer is talking to you through your speakers.

The installation process is less than 3MB, so the entire program can be installed, free, in about 5 seconds.  You can be up and running this yourself before you finish reading this review!  And it’s extremely easy to use.

You can also save the text you enter into the program or load text files you already have saved.  The program can also read out entire web pages in some cases if they are text-friendly.  The user can also adjust the speed and the pitch of the read-back using simple sliders on the right-hand side of the program – just make sure you click Apply first. 

Speakonia is simple, free, and gets the job done

  • Free
  • Nearly instant installation
  • Very intuitive User Interface – start typing, click play, and you’re off.
  • 10 different voices included by default with more available for download
  • Modulate voice Pitch, Speed, and Volume with simple sliders
  • Play, pause and stop audio playback
  • Can (sometimes) read entire web pages aloud, if they are formatted properly or just in text

Although Speakonia is no longer being maintained by its developers, it’s still an extremely simple and easy-to-use piece of software for reading text out loud.  It’s not the most advanced voice, and it may sound quite out of date if you’re used to Siri and Alexa, but if you just want something basic that can start reading text aloud then this piece of software is a very easy and fast way to get started.

Speakonia is a pretty useful piece of software for reading text out loud, along with this you get a large variety of voices to choose from, and you can control the reading speed as well! You can also save the voice recordings for later use if you wish.

Speakeronia is not just a fun name to say, text-to-speech software is a very unique piece of software and a mystery to me how it manages to read and speak words through software, a bonus is that this software is freeware. A good selection of voices is important so you are not stuck listening to the same voice in every conversion.

If you are more adept at learning through listening, or you need to have written info read to you for other purposes, such as a disability, this tool will work great for you. It is free, too. Text in a text editor can be read back, paused rewound, and even exported and saved to a .wav file. Also, works with HTML so you can get this tool to read webpages to you. Can also be integrated with an email to have your emails read to you. The voice is great and the speech is clear and is great for those who prefer to or need to listen instead of reading.

Really great and helpful piece of audio software. Basically, it takes barely any time to download and allows you to have text read out loud. I'd really highly recommended it to anyone who, like me, is just a little bit lazy when it comes to reading or who requires it for accessibility. I have it on all of my computers since it's just so useful.

I found this very user friendly and easy to install. It allows me to convert text to speech accurately and I can also adjust the speed. I definitely am glad I bought this.

Speakonia is a software developed for reading text out loud for androids, windows, and other devices it has about twenty voices which are of strong bot accents which enable users to adjust the reading speed and pitch. Speakonia lacks the ability to save sound files in MP3 format but saves texts in WAV files for playback, this is good to use especially when one is driving, sporting, or in any other activities. Speakonia has a nice and clear program interface that demands one to select text in any document and press Control C for it to be read aloud. Unfortunately, Speakonia lacks the ability to skip to the next sentence or paragraph. However, Speakonia is an excellent choice to its users because of its affordable price and satisfactory performance, hence highly recommended to everyone and those with eye defects.

Speakonia is great for people who want to multitask and listen to a text-to-speech robot reader. Using this free program allows you to highlight text copy and review it via robot speech pattern. There are a variety of voices to choose from as well as the speed, and pitch of the speaker. It will also allow you to save the text as a wave file to review it later.

Speakonia, just reading it, it sounds unlike anything you've ever heard before. Which really fits the software perfectly. Speakonia is unlike any text to speech software you've ever heard of or used before. Not only can you change the voice itself, but you can change speed as well as pitch. Speakonia is ahead of their competitors, by making the software easy to run, but also making it completely free. Which is something that those who are vision impaired, can really take advantage of. You can also save sound clips as WAV files, so they are easily accessible on trips or for any other reason.

A registration key is needed to use the full potential of the software. The software will have no more updates in the foreseeable future. Speakonia has an intuitive interface with some advanced options. It is an enhancement from Windows default software and a neat and simple tool. You have the option of changing speed, volume and voice.

Sometimes when I am out hiking or driving I want to listen to someone read. I was looking for software that would read documents for my computer. I found Speakonia for Windows. It is a free download and can read texts in 20 different languages. Though the voice sounds robotic, it is clear. It's a great tool for learning a new language.

Speakonia, by CFS Technologies is a freeware interface which allows printed text on a computer to be read out loud. The software comes with some 20 automated robotic voices to choose from, though customer feedback reports that these voices are rather unrealistic, and stilted. Speakonia has the ability to save WAV files but lacks an ability to save files as an MP3. In spite of this, the software is still easy to use and figure out, with a simple interface, and also has the ability to retrieve and read web sites out loud for users. Though this software is no longer regularly updated by the company, it remains a basic and free option for simple text-to-audio conversion and would be a good choice for someone who needs the basics.

I'm a huge fan of using Speakonia for Windows because it's a program that recognizes text and reads it as a form of speech out loud. I appreciate that the program comes with a variety of voices that you can choose from, and you can even modify those voices to suit your needs according to speed as well as pitch. Best of all, it's extremely easy to teach Speakonia the right pronunciation for words and names.

Speakonia software is easy to use and allows you to create text-to-speech audio files quickly. It has a good range of voices and settings that can be adjusted to create a variety of tones. The output audio quality is good, but can sometimes be a bit choppy. The documentation provided is clear and helpful.

Speakonia is a great software for creating speech from your text, however it does take some time to get used to the user interface.

I found Speakonia software to be a useful tool for converting text to speech, but the voices were somewhat robotic and lacked natural inflection.
