Text to voice generators

Text to voice generators are great for creating audio files by simply typing in the words you want spoken, clicking a button and voila!!

There are a couple of sites you can visit to generate male/female speech in several accents.

Scansoft's rVoice is one site which allows you to speak English, Greek, German and Spanish. For English, you can choose between American, Southern Californian, British, Scottish, Australian and Spanish accents.

The rVoice demo is made available for non-commercial demonstration purposes only. The input text is limited to 255 characters (about 50 words) and the output can take the form of either audio stream or you can download it as a .wav file (and add to a Powerpoint presentation???)


AT & T's Labs-Research site has an interactive multi-lingual demo which allows text to speech generation. I don't think it allows you to say the speech as a audio file though.
