There are alot free, shareware, open source, proprietary programs/apps & online services with bad - medium (IMHO, often sounds robotic and not spoken fluently) quality. Esp. the quality differences for different languages are high. Some german sites offer already "news reader button", but imho no HAL (2001 Space Odyssey) quality ;)
Maybe some here own licences of more expensive or tested occupationally several TTS programs. Whats your best buy/download tip for German?
Please name only good-high quality software (no robotic voice, fluent reading)
Please give at least a link to software, runnnig platforms/OS, rough price.
PS: @ mods, i made 2 questions as speech recognition and synthesis are fundamental different and most software focuses only on one of both, same as in music synthesizer & analysis software (e.g. Melodyne high quality music analysis software without any synthesis capabilites)
