Best text-to-speech software
Here are some examples of synthesised speech stored on my OneDrive.
What sounds pleasing to one person may not suit another, so one good thing about TTS is that you can choose the voice, speed, and pitch you prefer. Once the text is prepared, with intrusive page numbers etc removed, it can be kept for future improvements in the technology.
“The Tower of Babel
1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward, a they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.
3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”
5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”
