Just to provide a little more information, Dolphin produced some synthesizers that claimed to be very close to a real human voice--Apollo and Apollo 2. The first Apollo was a desk top synthesizer and the Apollo 2 is a software model.

From memory, there was a Dolphin Synthesizer as well but I can't remember too many details.
We have come such a long way with speach access and, yes, my Screen reader of choice is NVDA latest version. I wouldn't be without it.

Dolphin is not a screen reader, rather it is a company in the U.K. that markets several access technology software products. Their primary product is the SuperNova Access Suite, which includes a screen reader and screen magnification product.
Dolphin is pretty big in Europe, but not so widely used in the United States, though they have been around for a while.

Dolpin is a screen reader. If your ranking screen readers it is usually
ranked as third.
I don't know mch about it besides it's supposedly not as good as job and
that it is commercial so you have to buy it.
