Hello,
Wouldn't it be cool if we actually knew these people as they
originally wer/are? However, some/most might've died out but left heir
recordings to use for voices with JAWS/decktalk and other things. BY
the way, I believe Caren's already married to Lee-another Australian,
you know? This is just my opinion.

Are you talking about Karen from Australia?
Man, I've had some big time fun writing scripts for her to say!
And that's all I got to say about that! LOL!

How about slowing down your listening speed? LOL. The JAWS diffult
is set to 15, slower then snails.

Well, pilgrim, how 'bout The duke reading your shopping list oh, how I
wish I could write that in Winterset, Iowa dialect)! I'm personally a
fan of Vocalizer's Karen, but reading at my speed means I can't use
any of them, except Eloquence, for very long.

Well, "sexy" is in the ear of the beholder, that's for sure.

I've found some of the "foreign" (for the United States) accented
voices on Garmin, particularly one of the British female and
Australian male, voices to be rather mellifluous and somewhat sexy.
Everyone's mileage will, of course, vary,

I don't find, for instance, the SAPI voice "Microsoft David" that I
use with NVDA "sexy" but I do find it, in many instances, particularly
when it's reading through something at beyond the letter or word
levels to be remarkably lifelike in most instances.

Not knowing the synthesizers that various people are using it's
impossible to suggest generic ways to search for a "sexy" voice for
them, but I'd be willing to bet that someone has created them, even if
they're not commercially available, but it's a matter of finding them.
Inflection, breathiness (or lack thereof), and vowel duration are a
lot of what get's tagged as "sexy" when you think about voices in real
people that are described as sexy. These are parameters that it's
possible to control in a speech synthesizer.

It would be an absolute riot to create a "femme fatale" or the male
counterpart thereof synthesized voices for use with anything, screen
reader or not. I don't think that anyone would use the most "over the
top" versions for any period of time, but they could make for great
entertainment value over a short term.
