Text To Speech WAV is a free Windows software that provides text to speech utility and also enables users to convert any text to WAV format. By saving the playback of the text content to WAV format, you can easily launch the audio file anytime to listen to the transcribed text.
Text To Speech WAV comes with a number of handy options, including bit rate selection, volume adjustment, etc. All you have to do is to copy and paste the respective text and click Say. This will playback the text. You can select the audio format between mono and stereo, adjust volume and speech speed, and save the playback to WAV (audio) format by clicking the Save option. Each word that is being transcribed is highlighted for the convenience of the end user.
