Speech synthesizer.

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...

Cepstral's voices for example which are available in much better quality and in a multitude of languages (I don't know if Apple has more than only English, but I don't believe so).

They ought to hook this in to Festival, so it can sound as good as it looks.

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

Actually, it's true it looks upside down because the chin and the two "bar" of skin that go from the nose to the tip of the lips, looks very much alike on the picture. But ! but the picture is straight because the central teeth are wider on the top than on the bottom. I can't belive i took the time to write such a silly comment ! lol :-)... now i am going to try the software !

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.
