To be honest thats why I am all for sapi voices in the big
synths but then I want to be a multiuser type deal.
I don't really need high quality voices for general admin,
after all, crappy and fast with good performance is fine for my
general day to day life.
Playing games or reading books, then yeah I need better voices,
but espeak does what it does which is read the screen.
The issue with high quality voices is while you can use them to
read the screen there is a delay when they do things and there
is a bit of lag.
They are fine for books and games though.
Espeak is also good in dosbox but that could also be my old dos
Of course depending what the game is, you need a voice that
Sometimes there are arcade and other games that while you can
run a high quality voice, especially if these are mimicking
older arcade machines, high quality kinda doesn't go, then
something crappy and robotic sounding like eloquence fits that
Beatstar for example fits a lot better with eloquence because I
concidder it an arcade type unit type deal.
But it depends on the user and what you do of course.
For most of the time I actually need performance over quality.
As long as its read then its fine.
