Actually it's www.cepstral.com. You can't actually get them from Nextup. And they cost about thirty bucks per voice. The difference is that you actually register the voices like you do most audio games, and it's really easy to retrieve your license numbers if you should happen to lose them. I don't know if they're machine specific though. ----- Original Message ----- From: "shaun everiss" <shau...@xtra.co.nz>

www.nextup.com should be a place to get the cepstral but they cost I think 35 bucks per voice.
espeak is at
http://espeak.sourceforge.net
its free.
both synths I think are sapi 5x compatible so should have no issue running on any modern system, xp and up. If you are thinking about loading on anything else below xp there is the sapi 5 packages you need to download I think win98 is the earliest you can load these on.

This is getting a little off-topic, so I've changed the message to reflect that. Does anyone know how/where I can get either the Sepstral or e-speak voices, as I have heard good things about each? And how I can get them co-working with JAWITHS?

Hi John,
Smile.  Oh, i know that, but I am really looking for something
much more
human/realistic for the Tomb Hunter series.  Besides FreeTTS is a
Java
based TTS Engine and the Tomb Hunter series is written in C#.  If
I were
going to go through the difficulty of writing a .NET wrapper for
a
speech system I'd likely do it for something like the Cepstral
voices or
E-Speak.
Cheers.

Thomas,

The FreeTTS Kevin16 voice may drive you "up the wall" but it's
totally
free, totally IP unencumbered, it's easy to code against, it
always works,
and it's totally cross-platform.

That being said, the sound is not my favorite either and I'd
really like
to get the FreeTTS JSAPI interface working.  Then maybe I could
use Mike
(which we use as a WAV file for our audio splash screen) and the
other
better voices.
