Charles O. Hartman's original DIASTEXT program is available from the tools page of my website. He was kind enough to send it after someone forwarded my query to him. You'll find it as a ZIP file containing a DOS executable and the C source at :
You'll also find a Perl program to do diastic reading on that page. And, last but not least, I have a web page that does diastic reading (I made the Perl program into a CGI script ). So, you can go to
type in your key/title phrase, paste in your text, click a button, get the diastic text, and not use anything other than your browser.
There are also links to Taylor Brady's Word macros and other things that other folks and other sites pointed me to.
Happy computed writing.
