Then you should hear some of the czech voices out there. Eloquence sounds
sooooo much better than anyone of them. :-D Actually, Acapela has just
developed a czech voice now that just rocks and puts every other voice out
of place. But it's too expensive and responds rather slowly as well. Oh
well, but this is getting off-topic I guess. Just to agree that what is good
for a screen reader doesn't have to be good for a game. I actually liked
Heather pretty much - I checked her out when I was looking at that czech
voice of theirs, so I think this is one of the best available choices for
the game. So this is 38 reasons to use her already. *grin* Don't know the
other mentioned voices myself, so this is perfect for me.

As I've said before, the response time is the only reason, and i repeat
the ONLY reason, why I use Eloquence as my screen reader voice. As for
whether it sounds human, I've rarely heard a less human sounding voice.
But I guess it's a matter of opinion. But you're right in that it would be
horribly out of place, to say the least, in a game like MOTA, even if it
were just used in the menus
