Allows you to quickly select different voices, even combine them, or juxtapose them in order to create dialogues between different voices; 3.

Allows you to configure the voices in an independent way; 5. Thanks to apposite TAGs, it allows you to dynamically change the features of the voices during the playback (speed, volume and frequency), to insert pauses, emphasize specific words, or even to spell them out; 6. Allows you to capture and reproduce the content of the ClipBoard; 7. DSpeech is compatible with all vocal engines (SAPI 4-5 compliant); 8. AI dialog system. Not really useful, but amusing.
