I'm downloading one of them now as I write this. I probably shouldn't have forked over the cash just now but I was impressed enough with the quality. It's an Irish voice named Catelynn. It's unfortunate though that the celebrity voices offered as samples are apparently not available for purchase. It'd be funny to draft Barak Obama as a voice in Window-Eyes or even some of my games. He who is valiant and pure of spirit may find the holy grail in the castle of aaaaggh. ----- Original Message ----- From: "dark" <d...@xgam.org>

Well i'm glad I also have a sapi enabled copy of daniel, and I certainly have no plans to stop using it for Entombed, Jim's games, blind adrenalin or indeed anything else just because nuance are being so ridiculous.

On the pluss side, there are some very good alternative voices available.

John Banic recently put me in the direction of a company called ceerproc, who's voices are really rather impressive in terms of natural sound and cadence, and are sold as stand alone voices which may be used for various other programs.



Look them up at http://www.cereproc.com/home

Hth.

Beware the Grue!

Hi Lori,
Like I just wrote in my last message I really don't know of any place
where the generic Sapi versions of the Scansoft voices can be located
these days.   A friend of mine wanted a copy like I own, that came
with Jaws 8 and Openbook 8, that works with games, screen readers, and
everything else, and unfortunately they can't be found anywhere.  I've
checked the Nuance web site and there is no listing for the voices as
their once was a couple years back, and if you get them with one of
their Scansoft products like Omnipage apparently the voices only work
with Omnipage and nothing else.  If you get them with Jaws or Openbook
from Freedom Scientific they only work with Freedom Scientific
products. If you buy them from Nextup they only work with products
like Text Aloud, News Aloud, and Weather Aloud. If you buy a GPS with
them on them they only work on that GPS device of course. In short,
there seams to be a universal change in the way Nuance does business
and  how exactly they license their Real Speak voices.  There doesn't
seam to be a way to license and use them as a standard generic Sapi
voice any more.  At least not publically anyway.

Hi I was wondering if anyone could tell me where the best places is to get
the scansoft voices for Sappi5?  I know there are natural voices from
different suppliers but am actually a bit shocked at the price, especially as some of them which are supposed to sound natural sound a bit stilted.
I'd like to get the Scansoft Karon one.
