Not all synthes can do it. In fact Dectalk is the only one I know of. But
you have to know phonemic spelling.

Hi,
A little off topic but how do you get a speech synthesizer to sing? Though

I
can't stand Decktalk myself, and I find that eEloquence pronounces words
like  to, for example, in a way that sounds more natural.

Best Regards,
Hayden

Hi Bryan,

Well, I find that a bit unusual. Back when I started using screen
readers in the 1990's the first hardware sinth I owned was a Dectalk.
I fell in love with the Dectalk voice and I always felt it was
hundreds of times better than the accent, Keynote, Doubletalk, and
other choices at the time. Most Window-Eyes users I know love the
Dectalk Access Software, and so do I. I guess I never thought anyone
would willingly take Eloquence over Dectalk. Eloquence is terrible and
too robotic in my book, and I always felt the Dectalk was more human
sounding. In fact, I own the Linux version of Dectalk Access that
works with Orca as well.

I agree with you there. I myself se Eloquence with WIndow-Eyes, but if it
weren't for the fast response rate I wouldn't bother. And while Dectalk
is
also included that's a voice I can't listen to for extended periods
unless
I'm making it sing.
