The American Telephone and Telegraph Company -- better known as AT&T -- has a natural affinity to voice-transmissions. It comes to no surprise that a company with telephony-roots would encourage and sponsor the developement of a high-quality, artificial voice system.
Still, listening to the Natural Voices demos is quite amazing anyway. Except for minor glitches, Natural Voices intoniation is first class. What's even more amazing: I like the german speech better than the english one. It sounds even more natural to me.
Is it any good?
You bet it is! I played around with it and came up with two examples. Like mentioned in the initial summary, I like the german one more. Still, the US one is also very convincing. I didn't like the UK ones that much.
androids.mp3(1906): It is amazing, what A T & T managed to do. The quality of the A T & T Labs Text To Speech program is awesome. I think that this system would be perfect for Androids.
wetter.mp3(1803): Ob das Wetter gut wird oder nicht hängt in erster Linie vom Wetter ab! Dennoch kann dank moderner Computer-Technik oft vorhergesagt werden, wie das Wetter sein wird. Um einen ersten Eindruck vom heutigen, morgigen und übermorgigen Wetter zu bekommen, bietet sich das Wetter-Modul vom Konfabulator an.
AT&T Natural Voices (take care, the site doesn't look too good in Firefox. Apparently, the validation warnings have either been ignored or there wasn't any HTML validation involved at all)
I found the site via Linkdump.be
