Have fun typing words and numbers (mainly for children)
Simplistic text editor with
-> Color-coded characters (letters, numbers, etc.) -> As typed speaks (spells out) letters/numbers in the currently selected language -> Switch between speaker languages (currently English and German) -> Switch between 5 buffers (auto-saved to disk) -> Unlimited font zooming in/out -> Selectable font (via font preview combobox) -> Can automatically show images depicting current word -> Email current buffer to one of 5 preconfigured recipients -> Display images that depict current word or letter -> Display sign language and braille symbol of current letter -> All actions are available via toolbar and function keys
-> Requires Java 8 (uses NIO.2 for file storage, lambdas, etc.) -> Uses Java Swing, mainly the JTextPane. -> equires http://sourceforge.net/projects/espeak/[espeak] command in the PATH.
-> "Login"-Dialog where computer speaker welcomes and asks user for their name -> Let computer read the current sentence or line -> Hand writing recognition (of single letters) -> Make computer voice more "interactive" -> Mute button for pure typing mode -> Configurable character colors -> ASCII art mode (restricts font selection to mono-spaced) -> Printing
