Re: Do not have liquids when listening to this

I used Betty, the best of  the female choices.  I agree with a  recent commenter.  Many of these voices might be useful if your voicing cartoon characters, but they’re good for little else.  The original Shelly (circa 1997) sounded like Marge Simpson, and who in the world would want to listen to that day in and day out?

Faithfulness does not begin with large tasks-if it is not present in small things, it does not exist at all.

That was DecTalk, wasn’t it?  I’ve still got one of those cards around the office.  The commonwealth paid for it back in 1997.

I bet no one would believe I used to like Huge Harry?

My female manager heard the senthetic voice and said, “Can’t you get a sexy man to be the voice?  Does it have to be so robotic?”

That may have been a ridiculous question then, but not so much now.

There are some very "sexy" sounding voices available for speech synthesis that sound virtually human.  This is particularly so on GPS devices, and some of these voices are a hoot (unless someone is easily offended by directions being given in very suggestive, as opposed to demanding, tones).
