Overview

Vox Machina is a speech synthesizer program for Mac OS X. It utilizes Apple's Speech Synthesizer technology, which enables it to speak text out loud and save spoken text as audio files (either uncompressed AIFF or MP3-encoded audio). Vox Machina also sports a lip-syncing feature where the relevant lip and mouth movements corresponding to spoken phonemes are displayed with a series of images.

Unfortunately for me, like other text-to-voice apps, this one has its own built-in list of system voices, so the better voice files I've added to my system can't be used. If the developer could get the app to make up its voice list from the actual available voices, that'd be great...

Umm, the voices from the pop-up menu do not match what they are when I press the speak button. For instance, when I select Zarvox, it speaks in the Whisper voice. Using OS X 10.4.2

Update to my previous comment: this app sees the voices in /System/Library/Speech/Voices but not the ones I installed in /Library/Speech/Voices - so it isn't using a built-in list as I thought, it just isn't looking everywhere it should yet...

Is it just me, or does the face seem to be upside down?

Whether this program is useful or not depends on whether one can tolerate the monotone of the Mac voices. But the program's worth downloading simply for the inspired lunacy of its lip-syncing feature. It's nice to know that some developers have a sense of humor.
