Full Measure ClipTalk automatically speaks text that is copied to the Windows clipboard (e.g. with Right Click -> Copy or Ctrl+C). Speech is supplied using the Microsoft SAPI software that is included with Windows XP and Vista.
- Special tags can be added to the text to influence how sections are spoken, for example, to select a voice or alter the pitch.
- ClipTalk can also be used to add speech to any program or macro facility that can copy text to the clipboard.
- To run, execute ClipTalk.exe or use the start menu item if the setup program was used. Users can create a shortcut (e.g. using right drag on cliptalk.exe) and edit that to specify options or start ClipTalk Minimized.
- Auto markup means that if the text starts with a '<' it will be processed for markup; otherwise, it will not.
- SAPI may also be installed on Windows 98 with SAPI Text To Speech (TTS) components, this will also install 2 additional free voices, Mike and Mary, on XP.
