Use ANY voice installed on your computer with TTSReader!
I was so excited when I found out about this! You can use ANY custom SAPI5 voice installed on your Windows PC with ttsreader.com!
1) Use any voice to enhance the reading experience
Why is this exciting? Since you may now use many more voices, including custom / tailored / high fidelity voices you purchased and installed with our simple to use, light weight effective player.
2) Use your own voice!
And also - and this was new to me - since apparently - technology has reached a level where you can create your own synthesized voice, that mimics exactly your own voice. Very cool. And for people who are about to lose their voice - this is more than simply cool - it’s a way to keep their own voice! This service - of recording your won voice - in order to create a synthetic voice that mimics it via SAPI5 interface - is given by Acapela-Group.
Credit for bringing this use case, and requesting this feature to JC. Thank you JC!
Here’s a short video demoing my own synthesized voice reading out some text on ttsreader:
Important note: currently it only works on ttsreader.com when using the Firefox browser.
What do you think? Cool right? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
