"PocketClock is a multifunctional clock/alarm/timer/stopwatch utility that enables the user to measure time in almost unlimited ways. The current day and time can be displayed in both Digital and Analog formats. The Alarm view allows the user to set up to 20 different alarms. The Timers view offers 4 countdown clocks, which can be run simultaneously. The Stopwatch view will track event times to the hundredth of a second and complete with an unlimited number of split times. The Events view will calculate how far away a user-specified future event (e.g., the new year or your wife’s birthday) is in months, weeks, days, hours, minutes or seconds. But the software can do still more - there are several other views as well. Want to know what time the sun will rise tomorrow in your city? Want to know the minute that the moon will full? What time is it in London right now? In Tokyo? PocketClock has the answer to all of these questions and more!"
Balabolka is a Text-To-Speech (TTS) program. All computer voices installed on your system are available to Balabolka. The on-screen text can be saved as a WAV, MP3, OGG or WMA file. The program can read the clipboard content, view the text from DOC, RTF, PDF, FB2 and HTML files, customize font and background colour, control reading from the system tray or by the global hotkeys.
Balabolka uses various versions of Microsoft Speech API (SAPI); it allows to alter a voice's parameters, including rate and pitch. The user can apply a special substitution list to improve the quality of the voice's articulation. This feature is useful when you want to change the spelling of words. The rules for the pronunciation correction use the syntax of VBScript.
