Infovox iVox for Mac4.1.1

28 July 2015

Natural sounding voices in many languages to use in any app.

What is Infovox iVox for Mac

Infovox iVox, a high-quality multilingual Text to Speech application, provides system-wide clear and pleasant voices to OS X for blind and vision impaired users, for individuals who need audible feedback or reading support, for language learning or for people who prefer listening to their computer.

Infovox iVox 4.0 offers 107 voices in 31 languages becoming the voice that enables your computer to speak. The naturally-sounding voices can be used in any OS X application that is compatible with Apple Speech Manager, such as Apple's VoiceOver, Safari, Adobe's Acrobat Reader, TextEdit and Preview. Infovox iVox is also included in GhostReader, Proloquo, and VisioVoice offerings from AssistiveWare.

Infovox iVox contains two applications: Voice Manager and Pronunciation Editor. Voice Manager provides a dashboard overview of the Infovox iVox voices allowing you to see the status of the voices on your computer, install and remove voices, activate voices and manage user accounts. Pronunciation Editor is utilized for tailoring the way a word is pronounced by an Infovox iVox voice.

Individual Infovox iVox voices can be downloaded for a 30-day demonstration period via the Infovox iVox Voice Manager and are permanently activated using purchased voice credits. Voices can be purchased through the Voice Manager for $14.99 USD / €14,99.

I had a lot of problems initially with the software, but after some debugging with the company and their updating of the software it has been working seemingly well. I particularly like some of these voices and use one in particular for my system default now as it seems to be markedly better than Apple's voices.

The new version 4 utilizes a new licensing scheme that allows only one activation. There is no way to use it on your laptop if traveling and your desktop at home. Only one computer! That means you have to purchase ($$$) two licenses per voice if you want to use it while traveling. That is unacceptable. Single use I can understand (one computer at a time, max of two), but not just a single computer. Second, while the version 4 update is "free", each voice you own has to be re-activated. That means you have to purchase the "upgrade" for each voice for that single computer. So version 4 really isn't free unless you plan on just using to demo voices.

Infovox iVox 1.3 is indeed not compatible with Snow Leopard. A complete rewrite of the core iVox speech engine was necessary to make Infovox iVox 64-bit compatible and ready for Snow Leopard. Despite the major engineering efforts, Infovox iVox 2.0 is offered as a free update in order to facilitate the migration to Snow Leopard for those people who rely on these natural sounding voices to use their computer.

I've purchased both the US English and British English voices...they are top-notch. I've not found any other voices for the Mac that are as good. I use them to proof things I've written (nothing like having someone read your material back to you), as well as (with the GhostReader application) listening to text files read by one of the voices on my iPod. I do tend to find a favorite voice that I'll use 90% of the time, but it's nice to have the others available to add some variety.

The best French voices I could find, but very expensive. US$99 is for one language only. You'll find that in each language one voice is probably the best and the others you won't really use, but you're forced to buy them anyway. If you want a French, German, Italian, Russian and British English voice it'll cost you nearly $500!!!! If they charged a flat rate of say US$30 per voice I'm sure they'd make a lot more money. I'd buy at least two or three then, whereas now I won't buy any becuase it's not worth paying $99 for a few voices in one language...

Where tf are the asian voices or better yet, an asian version of macintalk? Been waiting for that since before OSX even existed! (for laughs), somebody needs to make a George Clooney, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, or even a Marilyn Monroe voice... I'd lmao, and then permanently make them my default voices.
