IVR Tutorial Lesson 7: Use a Natural Text-to-Speech Engine
This tutorial uses Text-to-Speech(TTS) very often, for both fixed text and dynamically generated text. If you are using the shareware edition of Voicent Gateway, the TTS engine included is a free one provided by Microsoft. The Microsoft TTS voice, however, is computer generated and hard to understand.
Voicent offers a better Natural Text-to-Speech engine, with both male and female voices. These voices have a more "human" quality that is 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 voice samples by listening to any of our online video demos.
