I told you a couple of days ago about the simple Windows text editor Notepad. (Click here to read that article.) Today I’m going to teach you a fun little trick.

Open Notepad and then copy and paste the text below. Make sure to copy and paste, it must be exact.

Dim msg, sapi
msg=InputBox(“Enter your text for Conversation”)
Set sapi=CreateObject(“sapi.spvoice”)
sapi.Speak msg

Change the name to audio.vbs and the file type to All Files. Then hit Save.

Type any text in the box and hit OK. Your PC will now speak that text to you.
