You might also look at http://www.cereproc.com/home for voices, sinse they have some very good ones indeed.

I myself use the Scansoft Uk English voice daniel (being English myself I prefer Uk English synths), but the seerproc ones are even better imho and I'm actually considdering forking over for one of their voices.


A good sapi voice is for playing accessible games is a litle like buying a joypad, ---- highly necessary sinse so many games use it and the default microsoft ones are so dire (I've heard worse, but not by much).

Beware the Grue!

Hey Phil,

I can understand why you would suggest buying a voice! The links you gave
me had quite the variety of them. I was pretty stoked to find that Real
Speak has an Australian one called Karen, which isn't too bad!

The Ivona Amy voice is my favourite from the pages you've linked to. It's
amazing to hear the difference between the voice I've got in Winfrotz TTS
to a properly paced voice using a screen reader program. Do you know much
about the Ivona Bright Voice technology, or the NVDA screen reader they
offer?

Cheers,

Neophyte.

Hi Neophyte,
If you are trying to play I F games using SAPI, you should try to get a
decent sounding voice.
The better ones need to be purchased and cost from $35 to $45 US per voice.
You can check out the demos at,
http://www.nextup.com
They carry the A T and  T voices. I prefer the Crystal and Mike US English
voices.
I read a review that said that most sighted players who use voices like
Acapela Heather the best which Next up also sells.

A new company, IVONA Text To Speech, has some interesting voices,
http://www.ivona.com/#

sincerely,
Phil
