Logfiles, CSV´s, output of shell-commands, all this is mostly based on text. Sometimes you need to larger replacement work. Read Adam Bertrams blog on best practices on text-replacement.

Text to Speech

Tommy Maynard, our gest at the User-Group meeting Max 11, wrote another inteesting article i´d like to mention here which is Text-to-speech conversion with PowerShell. So if you want to make your PowerShell solutions to talk with you read this blog.
