Personalized Voices: The Future of Screen Readers and TTS Technology | AppleVis | Access and Inclusion Through Technology | Scoop.it
I see ElevenLabs now has a ‘pay-as-you-go’ TTS marketplace. As present you pay as you generate audio you can then do whatever you want with it. It can’t be too long before this technology could be packaged into a TTS engine. This raises the tantalising possibility of giving everyone a personalised individual screen reader voice! My question is this – would you want this and would you be willing to pay for it?

Thoughts after Vision Pro demo: not really much for us yet, but that's ok | AppleVis

February 2 is Groundhog Day, which also means one of my favorite movies gets replayed on TV. This year though, I almost forgot about that because I was geeking out because Apple's Vision Pro headset got released. Since then, I wondered how long I could wait before caving to at least check it out even though I have no intention of buying one. A couple days later Apple began letting people reserve demos in their retail stores, so I decided to when I found out that my local store had a surprising number of open spots available. I did the same thing when the Apple Watch came out in 2015.
