What is the best text to speech software today? Software or web version
We've had text to speech software with us for a while now. Back 10ish years ago, we had it but it was rather basic and primitive and very "robotic" sounding. These days, the technology has improved and the voices used sound much more human like. Do you have any experience in this area and have tried out some text-to-speech software or online web app or anything to do it and can recommend a good one to use?
I used to do it a lot about 5+ years ago but can't remember the sites or software I used for it now I don't think. But I may have a very genuine reason for it and need to do a lot of it. So I'm looking for a good free online text to speech software or app I can use to convert some text files into speech for me. But not sound robotic but sound good like a human!
Does anyone know of any good free online text to speech software or apps or anything they can recommend to me? One you've been using yourself perhaps? Preferably one that doesn't have a limit on how much text you can convert to speech or one that lets me convert at least 1000 words for free. Or are there any good sites of software for this you know of who have plans or prices that are reasonable and affordable?
I guess I need to get Googling and see what I can come up with which I will. But I thought I'd just ask here first in case anyone knows of or can recommend something or point me in the right direction for that sort of thing. Much obliged to you if you do!
