Learners recently helped us choose the male voice for text to speech for post 16 learners. We had over 350 responses from a wide range of learning contexts and ages!
Now we need your learner’s to help us select from 7 female voice actors to decide who will form the basis of a new, free high quality synthetic speech voice. With a high quality female voice to supplement the male voice we hope to open up the world of free high quality text to speech to everyone in FE, skills and HE sectors. We’ve got a range of voices with a good mix of regional accents to select from.
It’s quick, its easy, its online and the deadline is 21st December…
There are 7 voices each speaking for less than a minute and you can listen to them all and score them at http://tinyurl.com/jtdVoice2
Please can you forward this to your best contacts working directly with learners to ask them to invite / encourage / cajole students to listen to them and rate them for us in before the end of term and certainly before 21st December? It’s a quick job – only 4 questions and a Yes/No recommendation per voice.
Once again, apologies for the rush – we’re trying to work around Christmas!
