LOL is a document reader similar to other text to speech converters but what makes it different is it is really very small in size and secure as it is open source . Its currently tested to work on Linux. Would be nice if you would test it on other OS and tell than on issues.

Thanks 😀

Setup

You must have python installed i am not covering it

  1. git clone https://github.com/korrykatti/LOL.git
  2. cd LOL
  3. open terminal/cmd
  4. pip install -r requirements.txt
  5. This may take some time
  6. python3 lol.py

And Booyah! The app has started

How to use

  1. go to the folder of the script
  2. Paste/Make your .txt file to be readed to you ( more file type support in testing )
  3. open terminal and python3 lol.py
  4. Just give the filename and enjoy listening
  5. If you want to change the accent just go to lol.py and in line engine.setProperty('voice', voices[11].id) change 11 to the voice index in your system
  6. If you want to slow down or fast the speech go to engine.setProperty('rate', 160) and replace 160 with whatever wpm you want

We now have PDF file support

for that just run python3 pdfreader.py
NOTE : Reading and speaking the pdf files is dependent on your system specs. For a pentium with 1 gb ram it takes 25 minutes to open a 40 page pdf. also the pdf must be in same folder. Pull request will be accepted if you find a faster method
