Hi Lukas,
Yeah, I have heard some text to speech systems worse than Eloquence. The FreeTTS text to speech system for Java that 7-128 uses in their gamebook drives me up the wall. The E-Speak text to speech system isn't much better. Although since Orca, that's the Linux screen reader, uses E-Speak by default I've learned to tolerate it when I don't have something like Dectalk Access or Cepstral on hand. Grin. Anyway, we are really beginning to get off topic here. So we will have to stear back on topic here soon.

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.
