  • Coolest experiment I evah ran?

    Textin' to speech ... an' then speakin' that back to a speech-to-text engine.

    Result?

    Kinda like playin' Chinese Whispahs blindfolded durin' a global hippo fart phenomenon.

    Way I see it, computah AI still don't get how beautysweet be the voices we all got.

    Which is why most AI speech only sounds flooid for the real easy stuff -- like when Google says FFS I got no clue what you want.

    Aficionados of nooz stories read aloud when you dowin' your nails will know ... yeah, the rhythm is all wrong.

    Ansa prolly is to consult Klingon Science.

    See, cos before they got their foreheads morphed to resemble male perinium exotica, those guys ensured they jus' sounded weird.

    Plenty effects, appled globally to their moment-by-moment breath an' feel for sound, kinda transformed 'em from jobbin' voiceover guys to Spock's eternal nemeses.

    Start with heart an' transmoot from its pulse.

    Gowin' the other way don't work so good for hooman types.

    To be honest most of them sound like a robot. It's best to try and do it yourself or if you can't you can hire someone on fiverr or upwork.

    Then again sounding like a robot might not be so bad. I mean there's this Youtube channel with lots of viewers and the voice is a robot voice.

    But yeah, your best bet is to use fiverr or upwork.

    Play. ht is pretty good, but all of these online services come at a cost, since they have to pay server costs etc for every word converted.

    There are loads of text to speech software and if you have used it before know that it won't be getting a real human who can do the job for you. you can do that very cheap on fiverr and other freelancer website. however text to speech software are good but it depend on what you want to use it for.

    SpeechKit is pretty good... Amazon Polly is also interesting, but requires a bit more techie skills.

    I recommend Newscaster Vocalizer, it's easy to use and sounds very human-like. Plus if you aren't satisfied, you can always get a refund.
    You can check it out through the link - https://bit.ly/2XM7Ykr

    Some free options are the good old Google docs, it has a free text to speech if you look in the tools section. Also Google chrome has a similar option if you use the right click option.

    I have been using Ivona since 2012. It's a handy tool.
