That's because you must be using the last release version 1.0.1. "Programs" tab was added to the in-development version. You can get some early builds for Windows here: ... or-Windows

Unfortunately, for Linux you have to download the source code and build it yourself.

I'm using Balabolka Text-To-Speech program:
I have some quality voices installed in my pc (win XP):
ScanSoft Emily_Dri40_16kHz and (for English)
Acapela Telecom HQ TTS English (UK) (Lucy 22 kHz) (for English)
ScanSoft Isabel_Dri40_16kHz (for Spanish).

I tried Espeak, but could not choose these voices.
Here two examples of command lines for Balabolka (change the path, of course):
E:\programas_portables\Balabolka\Balabolka_portable\balabolka.exe -rnmq "The program will read this text." Emily
E:\programas_portables\Balabolka\Balabolka_portable\balabolka.exe -rnmq "Esto es una prueba de lectura." Isabel

This is for Balabolka from GoldenDict:
E:\programas_portables\Balabolka\Balabolka_portable\balabolka.exe -rnmq %GDWORD% Lucy

Hi Gocool,

here you can find last build: ... or-Windows

You'll find the screenshot dialogbox, by a click on the menu Edit | Dictionaries.
