just something i noticed, when i set foobar volume to say -25 dB and have lower volume on speaking ticked in the tts settings, when it speaks it actually raises the volume of the music for a few seconds.

Other than that its working great.

Oops. Sorry about that.
I've updated the plugin (only for 0.7 though) so that it always reduces the volume by 13dB. You can download it from the usual link.

I have to say this is one of the greatest but most pointless (for me) plugins ever. It's excellent, i've had it uttering all manner of filth for *certain artists.*

One thing would make it useful would be an option to  divert the speech to another directsound device (not to foobar) which means I could divert the speech to a satellite speaker in the living room which I could turn off if I didn't want to be talked to by my computer. I've not looked at the recent foobar sdks, and assume the engine is build round a single output stream, which would need the plugin to talk to directsound directly. I might be wrong though.

Good work by the way!

VTR said in an earlier post the he was in the process of getting those AT&T natural voices. They would be cool, but they're commercial.

BTW. I've uploaded a new version of the plugin for 0.7 that can announce the song also at the end of play.

I think there are a few voices on the MS webpage that you can download, though none of them are really very good either =(.  But atleast you can choose one besides sam.

While ignoring your childish spelling of Microsoft, what exactly is wrong with using their stuff? If it doesn't fit the job then fine, but why discount their stuff purely because of who makes it?

And for all their faults, i'm sure Microsoft have as much experience with speech as the rest of us.

Ok don't tell me, you're 13 years old, right?

Will you two relax?????

You're both acting like kids, so there is no winner.

Again, if anybody spots good quality voices, such as the ATT natural ones, please inform us on this thread.

I'm getting hold of some AT&T natural voices today but they're only the 8khz version. I'll let you know what they're like.

Paulski

P.S. If you missed my earlier post (LOL), there's a new version for 0.7 that can announce at the end of a track as well (you can then get it to say "that was ..... by ......").

Hey, as long as it's better than Microsoft Sam, Mike and Peter, count me in.

Edit: The voices do sound MUCH better than the Microsoft ones, its a shame that you can only get the 8 khz ones. The British "Audrey" voice sounded VERY real. I think I can get these voices if I look in the...ahem...right places.

Mazy, whats the filesize for the engine, 8khz or 16khz, and where did you obtain it if you dont mind me asking? You may PM me if you'd rather not disclose on the public forum.

Ooh. Wow.

I'm going to try out foo_tts with the following sentences: Bother. Father caught hot coffee in the car park. I teach Ferdinand the calm cat to fetch cold cups of coffee. Who knows more about tasting things? He's used the book.

8 and 16, I think. The product he speaks of is two CDs, at least from what I can find. Extra 16k voice sets are about one CD per voice. Feel free to grab it if you have lots of bandwidth and/or time, and don't mind killing a few GBs of hard drive space for realistic voice synthesis.
