Hi Phil,
Grin. Since I paid for Heather out of my pocket at a price of $35 USD I'd say that is 35 reasons to use her in the game. let us see $35 plus two votes is 37 reasons to use the voice. i'd say she won.

Hi Thomas,
As you now have Heather to play with, How about one vote for her voice.
You can then remove my other vote from your list.
How about having each voice say a phrase and put them all in one mp3,
such as, This is Jill, and I am going to be talking in the next USA game.

Sorry I'm a bit late chimming in here, but I most like RealSpeek Jill.
Thanks

Subject: [Audyssey] Cross Platform Speech Support


Hi all,
As most of you know I am currently updating MOTA 0.5 to use the new cross
platform Genesis engine that uses open source game development APIs such
as SDL rather than DirectX. However, I do need your input on something
since there obviously is going to be a rather big difference in the way
speech is handled with the new engine.
In the current 0.4 release of MOTA the game gets DirectX and Sapi 5
support from the Windows specific engine. Since there is no Sapi 5 on Mac
OS and Linux the newer Genesis engine uses wav files of pre-recorded
speech to announce status messages, menus, etc rather than any OS specific
TTS engine. There are several other game developers that do it this way
like Draconis, GMA, and BSC so this isn't something new for accessible
games. It is also just easier to do it this way when building a cross
platform engine rather than trying to support Gnome-Speech, Apple Voices,
and Sapi 5 with the  same game engine. Which brings me to my question.
I was going to have someone do the voice overs for the menus, status
messages, for 0.5 but do to other commitments and scheduling our plans
fell through. For the time being i am going to have to record all the
messages using a TTS engine such as the AT&T Voices, Scansoft Voices,
Cepstral Voices, etc. If you had a choice which of the following voices do
you personally prefer?

AT&T Crystal
AT&T Mike
Scansoft Daniel
Scansoft Emily
Scansoft Jill
Scansoft Karen
Scansoft Lee
Scansoft Samantha
Scansoft Tom
Other

Thanks.
