Amazing Text-to-speech site (demo)
« on: July 14, 2007, 01:30:09 am »
Not sure if this deserves it's own topic, but take a look at this.

It does text to speech 1000 times better then Microsoft sam or any of those things, usually it can sound very real.

I've been making it say things for ages.  ;D

After a certain time you can't do it anymore.  :-[

I think I came across this a while back whilst searching for TTS programs. It's not bad at all, actually.

Cool site. Too bad it is so limited to just play with.

Imagine rigging a home server that waited for you in the morning to hit the spacebar. While you're making breakfast your computer could read you the RSS feeds. (News, Weather, whatever?)

Great, the next major hack attack will be some site that has this implemented being redirected to the Forum section of Penthouse.com.
