A BADLY NEEDED RESOURCE,AND FREE, MAX POINTS FOR THIS ALONE. MAKES MICROSOFT SAM SOUND ALMOST TERMINAL. IF I COULD AFFORD THE FULL VERSION I WOULD CERTAINLY BUY IT.
This is a nice software. Especially that it allows free usage. John, not sure if you still reading this review thread, but there is a text to speech program that would do exactly what you want. It's TextAloud from NextUp.com. For only $30 it's woth it. You can even purchase the most natural voices in the industry today made by AT&T. I think that's an extra $35 or so.To do the voice change, you go under the Edit menu and select Insert Voice Change. In script, it would look like this: hello bob, how are you today ? I'm fine, you look wellHope this helps.
This is like the rest of the free text to speech, its good but STILL does not do what I need. I had a program years ago that allowed you to write screen plays AND insert bracketed commands for the speech engine to CHANGE VOICES!!!. I have been searching for *&^%$# years to try and find this lost program but no luck. With it I could write a complete play and have different voices read the parts. Where is it and what was it ???? As an example of the text to change voices, you would write like this .....[*mary*] hello bob, how are you today ?[*bob*] I'm fine, you look welletc etc I have hunted and hunted and hunted the world net but STILL can't find this simple engine
i was using it to learn Spainish for a test tomorrow by listing to it while i sleep but it can only do 1000 characters per click of the button rendering it useless for my purpose. This is wat i have to say to its makers. "I like but... WAT THE ***! WHY PUT A LIMIT ON THE CHARACTERS!!!!!!!"
Unfortunately, they don't tell you that the free version is limited to 1000 characters, making it almost useless.
It works, it actually works. It has a simple, intuitive interface. I simply highlighted the text I wanted read, and Natural Voice Free read it. The speech sound a lot like Stephen Hawking's speech machine and I can understand his speech machine just fine. Best of all, it's free.
Awsome! Hilarious fun!
very useful for everyone
I can't believe I've finally found a Text to speech program that's actually free. I have been looking for a long while now and there's lots out there that sais free. Then I downloaded them and tried them only to find out that it was a demo version. This kicks major @$$!
With this you can increase your reading articals and other news in the web
its very good
although it miss pronounces words it's free
It makes reading mails and other things alot easier
Just a commentary, but I feel it is senseless and irresponsible to writea review if you have not even tried the software.
Hey to all i'm Alexandru from Romania, and i was looking for a program, not somethink special, an i think let's look at the mp3 players and reading from the top to the botom i see the name of this program i stay 2 minutes to read and to understand what functions have this program and then the light starts to glow ( the light from my mind of course) so i just say is very good this program, i did not download yet the program but i know when i find a good program, so i recommend this program to the others, click download you will not be sorry (or somethink like this) now i will download the program and a will enjoy him, another think is good for children with this program they coul'd lean another language for example: i'm from Romania, i know english language enough to speak with a person from U.S.A but others from my country they don't know how to speak english but thy understend the english lenguage so whit the help of this program they will learn how to speack englisc ho to pronunts the words ( i hope i open your mind) don't spend the money whyt the teachers install this program,and i want to thanks to the team who made this program: 1st Natural voice to text speech reader Alex From Romania
