Yes you can configure the 'Open With' plugin to open your epubs in Balabolka. However it's no longer really necessary as you can use a standard calibre feature to do the same thing.

Assuming your books are in epub format:

1. Highlight a book in the main calibre window.

2. Right-click on the word 'EPUB' in Formats in the Book details panel and choose 'Open EPUB with...' from the context menu.

3. Choose 'Add other application for EPUB files' and navigate to your copy of balabolka.exe in Program Files (x86) and double-click it. Your epub will open in Balabolka and off you go.

Once you've done this, for all further epubs you only need to do Steps 1 and 2 and choose Balabolka from the application list you are offered in Step 2.

My copy of Balabolka (v2.10.0.580) doesn't have options -n or -f

This is what my Help file says for commandline. It looks as if the -r option is what's required:
Spoiler:

Balabolka accepts the parameters at the command line:

balabolka.exe [-options] [filename] [audio_file] [voice]


The parameter voice must be defined in next way:

voice_name [rRate] [pPitch]

filename
open file

-c
read clipboard aloud

-c voice_name
choose voice and read clipboard aloud

-m
run minimized

-r filename
open file and read aloud from the beginning

-r filename voice_name
open file, choose voice and read aloud from the beginning

-s filename audio_file
open file and read the text to audio file (WAV, MP3, MP4, OGG or WMA)

-s filename audio_file voice_name
open file, choose voice and read the text to audio file

-q
quit after the reading's completion

I did watch which my version. It's still 1.22.

-f <text_file>
Sets the name of input text file.

But anyway did you try to use it with open with? You point -r in argument field and what next? How balabolka will know which file read?

As we are failing to understand each other I'll exit at this point. Good luck with getting the help you need.

@Dimsok : ah-ha, I assume you mean balabolka_console.exe

Try the Open With Optional Plugin, IIRC it has has provision for passing arguments.

If it's OK by you, I can merge this thread into it, so that it's clear your referring to the Optional Open With PI and not the built in Open With.

Sorry for the confusion

Can you post an image of what you are entering into the Open With PI dialogue,

BR
