revSpeechVoices

Post by edljr » Fri Jan 16, 2009 5:15 am

I have had great success implementing the revSpeak and related functions using Rev 3.0. What I would love to find is a "voice" that can speak Spanish. I realize I can have one of the featured voices read Spanish text, but it is not authentic sounding.

I can use wav files for standard text, but need text-to-speech functionality for dynamic content (specifically, monetary amounts). Is there anything out there that might be of use?

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,
Ed

Hi Horst,

Thanks for the links. I use a Mac to develop cross-platform applications. I looked at the links you provided and now realize that I need a solution to run inside of Rev (I think). I could use 3rd party T2S software and make calls to it, but I would have to independently develop for each platform (Mac & PC).

It seems like my best bet is to record all the possible speech permutations and call them as needed.

Thanks,
Ed

For OS X TTS - (text to speech) there is a 3rd party Accessibillity resource page.

may be worth a look.
