My projects that are not related to Information Security: Yennysay TTS and PyTouchOk companion app

Thanks to the long New Year holidays in Russia, I had time to work on my own projects that are not related to information security. I released them on github and recorded short demos (by the way, Zoom is quite convenient for this! 😅).

Yennysay is a GUI text-to-speach tool that uses a free offline TTS engine in Windows 10. This was my first experience with Tkinter and it turned out to be quite successful. I use this tool a lot now. Yennysay can read English and Russian texts aloud, show progress, track clipboard, retrieve text from copied URL, open YouTube URL in SMPlayer, and so on.

PyTouchOk is also a Tkinter application for automating routine actions with GUI (similar to SikuliX and AutoIt). The idea was to create a companion app that would track the content of the screen and, under certain conditions, take control to perform routine actions. As an example of such a routine action, I implemented the export of slides from LibreOffice Impress in svg format via pyautogui by automatically clicking in the interface. This operation cannot be performed for all slides through the GUI, and LibreOffice API is quite difficult to work with. But the main goal was to create a companion app that could be easily expanded with new skills. And it succeeded, the program “understands” that LibreOffice Impress is open on the screen and starts automatic actions.
