My strong view is that Eloquence combines being more
pleasant to listen to than other synthesizers at high speeds
and being more easily intelligible at high speeds. I
haven’t tried enough of the newer synthesizers to say that
no others are, but of the few I’ve heard, none equal
Eloquence. The Eloquence voice isn’t as pleasant sounding
as the newer synthesizers generally are, but it doesn’t have
unnatural pauses and inflections and it also pronounces more
words correctly out of the box than other synthesizers I’ve
You can see if you agree. A demo is available of a SAPI
version of Eloquence. One place you can read about it and
get it is here:
There is a link that says something like click here to
download a seven day demo and the page has information about
Which sapi synth do people
recommend that is intelligible at high speeds?
I tried Microsoft David from the Windows 1 Core voices, and
certain speed, the ends of words are quieted.
I'm not looking for as human-sounding as possible. I'm
intelligible and responsive when fast.
Thanks for any recommendations.
Chris, wishing someone could somehow write a software
emulation of the
old Accent synth. LOL
