Can someone recommend a software that can extract/view files directly from the Volume Slack of a dd file?

You may want to clarify your use of the term 'volume slack'.

To me, it means the space between the end of the volume and the end of the allocation unit that volume is contain in, i.e. the partition. (Just as file slack is the space between the end of the file, and the end of the allocation unit -- typically a cluster -- inside which the file data exists.)

However, files don't exist in volume slack -- they only exist inside volumes. So ... you may be using a different definition of the term. (Or you may be referring to remains from earlier partition contents or even earlier disk contents.)

In any case, any decent file carving software should help you, but which to choose often depends on what kind of files you want to retrieve. You may also need to isolate the volume slack first, to avoid carving other irrelevant data from other parts the image.

I'm talking about the files found in slack spaces. Is Volume Slack considered slack space?
