Test this out and see what you think.  I think it was definitely automated sounding, but not horribly so.

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, May 19, 2015 6:26 PM

Interesting free tool that could help with section 508 compliance. Only the paid versions of the program have the "natural" voices. 

David Swaddle's comment, May 19, 2015 11:09 PM
I think the fact that they went for a professional 'real human' voice on their video says a lot for the product. When the manufacturer won't use it themselves you have to realise that it's not quite there yet.
