to apple feedback
I was wondering if its possible to add a few speach synthisizers to voice over in the next ios release.
The first speach synthisizer I would like to bring to your attention is Alex for the mac. I have used a mac, and really love the Alex voice that comes standard with voice over for the mac. It is verry easy to understand, and it works well with voice over.
The other speach synthisizer I would like to mention is E T I Eliquence. E T I Eliquence is used on many windows screen readers, such as Jaws for windows, System Access, Window-eyes, andit can be used with an open source screen reader called NVDA. ETI Eliquence is easy to understand, and should work well with voice over.
Also, it is my understanding that you have the licences to the vocalizer voices from nuance comunications. Adding some more of the voices like Tom, and some of the other voices would be great. Thanks for reading this, and have a good day.
Please let me know what you think.
