7.1 Use a Natural Text-to-Speech Engine

This tutorial uses many Text-to-Speech prompt items, some of them are fixed text and others are dynamically generated text. If you are using the shareware edition of Voicent Gateway, the TTS engine included is a free one from Microsoft. One big problem for the Microsoft TTS engine is that its computer generated voice is hard to understand.

Voicent offers a much better Natural Text-to-Speech engine, with both male and female voices. These voices have much better 'human' quality and are easier to understand. The natural TTS engine is fully integrated with Voicent Gateway.

For more information, please refer to Voicent Natural Text-to-Speech Engine.

You can hear the voice samples by listening to any of our online video demo.
