New releases and general discussions.

Post » Sun Apr 05, 2009 6:20 am

wow, it's pretty good sounding as far as speech synth goes
is it using some text to speech feature built into windows?
anyway, it sounds good
if it's not some generic speech synth built into directx or something
I have many more questions

Yeah everybody should have Microsoft Sam. I know you can get additional voices, but then again not every one will have those voices.

If it doesn't have a voice you specify it just uses the default, but you could always package a voice with your application.

well, it was much better than I expected
last time I heard one built in, it was more of the Commodore Amiga/ Stephen Hawking kinda sound

I think construct is like having a full time team of programmers who do all the annoying crap for me, and I'm just free to program gameplay mechanics and such, and basic ideas that get fleshed out for me

if I really did have a team of programmers and recording studio staff that could implement ideas i have, I bet I could make a kickass concatenative speech synthesis engine, with emotions that could be changed and blended mid sentence, and adjustable inflection and breathiness. it's really pretty strange no one has done it yet.

my nerdy thought for the day

it's weird that it's called sam, or maybe not so weird

that was the name of the commodore 64 one
