Online Text to Speech Translator

Special thanks to Bill Paris for today's entry. He shared this great website with me today.

The text to speech translator allows you to enter text into a text area and the translator will speak the text in your choice of languages. One of the nice features is that you can set the speed of the text and the text is spoken in a very lifelike voice (as opposed to most computer generated text to speech programs).

Currently, the languages available are: English, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portugese, Russian and Spanish. You can copy and paste the text from a document or website. The translator accepts Asian characters as well.

This is a great tool for the classroom. What a great addition to the Language or ESL classroom. In addition, this site has great application for students with special needs and those with visual impairments.

The translator can be found at:

The Don'ts of Using Pubic Hair Dye

If you want to get rid of your gray pubic hair, the bets solution for that would be no other than a pubic hair dye. You may seem that it is an absurd idea but you will be surprised to know that this is already a popular activity that many women all over the world are enjoying.

For women who wish to dye their gray hair in a different color, it is recommended that you do your research first. Since we are dealing with the genitals-- a sensitive area of our body-- it would require more care and attention than other pubic hair colouring kit .

In addition to this, you would also need a special type of hair dye for this. In addition to that, here are the other don'ts involved in the dyeing of pubic hair.


use regular hair dye.
The hair that we have on our head is a lot different from the hair down there and this is the reason why you should make use of hair dye products designed for pubic hair. This type of hair products are a lot more gentle. Using the regular hair dye may lead to skin irritation and other infections.
Be afraid to try different colors.
A lot of women make use of pubic hair dye to conceal the grayness of their hair. There are others who use pubic hair dye

to match the color of their pubic hair with their hair. Because of this, manufacturers have decided to manufacture pubic hair dyes in various colors. Aside form the usual blondes, browns and reds, there are other options that you have so feel free to choose which would suit your personality.
Forget to rinse.
Different color kits would require different steps. The most commonly used ones would require only two steps. First the hair lightener and the other one is the hair color. After each step is done, it is highly important that you rinse the first product that you have applied thoroughly. When rinsing, you must make use of a warm water. If you fail to get rid of the hair lightening product, it will continue to do its job. On the other hand, failure to rinse the hair color would lead to stains on your clothes.
Overlook simple touch ups.
If you want a permanent look, you would need permanent hair color. However, you should keep in mind that its effect would not last for a very long time. After all, your hair will grow and a gray pubic hair

color will show off eventually. Plus, the effects of pubic hair colouring kit will fade overtime. This is why it is recommended that you touch up the roots of your hair regularly every three to four weeks. If you want, you can also dye the rest of the hair with an entire new color.
