Makezine_COTM_Resistors-BadgeRight now I’m sorting all my resistors into plastic bags, and it’s kind of a lengthy process! Anthony Clay wrote a program called EESPeak that speaks the numeric value when you describe the colors.

Have you ever had a giant pile of loose resistors to organize? I have! Instead of slowly calculating every single part in your head, I wrote this program, which allows me to simply call out the codes, and the computer responds with the part’s value! I’m sure I could make this much more useful in the future, but here’s the initial version.

You can follow along with EESpeak’s development on its Github repository.
