Text to Speech (Narration Software)

Jun 23, 2014

Hello, Does anyone have recommendations or suggestions on text to speech programs we can use for narration within our e-learning modules? I have looked at a few, but what is everyone else using?

I've used a Media Semantics product called Character Builder.  It comes with a few Neospeech voices and several others as well. It's not the greatest, but can get the job done and in multiple languages and gives your course an avatar (if you're into that kind of build).  You can adjust length of pauses and tweak some of the phonetics within the program, but it's far from perfect.  At the end of the day most any TTS programs will end up sounding somewhat robotic, but it might be an option for you.  Good luck!
