Re: Buying more voices


Lisle, Ted (CHFS DMS)
 

I go pretty fast, whether I'm reading on the PC or reading a talking book. Print readers can beat blind readers hands down, but I try to be as competitive as I can--going back to the 1970's and the Lexicon Verispeech. ?today's algorithms are so smooth there are no audible artifacts.

that depends on the voice you use. some are basey and harder to understand.
others, mainly the mens voices are much clearer. i do not see the need for
speed if you are not in a work environment.
people don't talk 1000 words per minute and i don't listen to the computer at
that speed either.

Hi,
Since these voices cost $115, are they really clear when speaking numbers and
very specific items like reading many addresses at higher speeds?

Some people say Eloquence does the best at higher speeds in terms of reading
accuracy.

Thank you.

$115? That's a lot a lot of money! That's more than I can spend at the moment!

if you have openbook 8, (i don't know about newer versions) then you would be
able to use the real speak voices that came with openbook 8. this was a stand
alone package.
another option, but is expensive is the stand alone vocalizer voice package
from the i t guys. but it costs $115

Of getting the Realspeak Solo Direct Voices to work by themselves outside of
JAWS within the Windows Operating Systems? The reason why I ask this is because
I have "Gold Wave", an audio software that comes with a text-to-speech
converter, and it seems the only voices I can get to work in there are the SAPI
voices I've installed on my machine. I've tried installing the Realspeak voices
from the CD that came with JAWS 8.0, but it says these versions will only work
on 32-bit operating systems. I want to try putting registry keys for these
voices in the Registry Editor, but I'm not sure if this will actually work.
What can I do next?
