Hello everyone o/ I read blogs and other Eve related news with TTS (Text to Speech) and I thought it would be cool to have a TTS for Eve Online. I spent days searching for a program that does this and couldn't find one, so I made one and am giving it freely to the eve community. The voices that come with Windows 7 aren't all that great, so I use Ivona Amy. I have the program working on my windows 7 computer and wanted to know if it works on others. I have a downloadable exe and VB sourcecode in a zip file at

The code is pretty simple stuff and i'm sure an actual programmer would blarg at it. It has been more than 10 years since i've written anything other than assembly stuff for school. You can look at it and modify it to your needs. I'll just keep on trucking with writing more content for it and let you know when I have the next version. I'm finding it kinda fun to program things while I do mindless tasks like mining in eve.

Program Instruction:
1. Make sure chat log is enabled in Eve Online
2. In Eve Speak, click the "Chat File" button and goto the chat file you wish to use.

As an example, if I was looking at the E-UNI chat, the path could be:

It helps to sort by date so you are looking at the most recent chat file.

1.Click "Test TTS" button to make sure the TTS system is working.
2.Click the start button and you should now be hearing everything that is going on in that specific chat.

Voice: Changes what voice you are using
Volume: The voice volume
Rate: How fast the voice will say words
Check Chat Log Timer: How often in milliseconds to check the chat log to see if anything new was said.

Note: This program copies the chat log that you opened to evespeak.txt everytime it checks to see if something new was said. Don't go overboard and bog down your system by trying to check it too often.

Eve Speak was tested on Windows 7 64-bit (I only have one computer and its windows 7)

Future versions:
1. I plan on doing the comments in the Visual Basic code, so you can look at it and know whats going on.

2.I want to create a list of words like afk or o/ or ... and have eve speak say them correctly.

This is really cool :) I might use this when I can't be ingame all the time but still want to follow chat. Except MS had such awful voices, so now I'll be off to retrieve a better voice :)

I have finished a version of Eve Speak that I think is worthy of a version 1.0

This is a text to speech program that works with eve online. It translates everything that is said in an eve online in game chat channel to speech. It does this by monitoring the chat channel log that is produced by eve online. So if you ever want to be online but afk, or not have the chat channel open all of the time, then eve speak is pretty nice.

special features in v1.0
1. Modify the TTS to replace any word with what ever you want (fun times with corp names and user names)

2. It automatically replaces all http or www stuff to just say "a weblink"
3. Three options for changing how to say a chatters name.
4. does not repeat a chatters name if they were the last one to say something
5. And the entire source code is your's play with
