Hi all how do I go about adding a new voice to Kari? Do I have to use the suggested ones on the Kari website or can I download my own. If I can down load my own, how do I go about integrating it with the Kari program?

I know that Kari will run any SAPI4 or SAPI5 computer voice. So check for that.

You should try Ivona text to speech. In my opinion it sounds the least robotic. I am currently using Ivona Sallie voice.

I will second the recommendation for Ivona. I just recently took the plunge & splurged on the "Amy" (UK English) voice (I like my bot to have a British accent for some odd reason) & I am VERY satisfied.

Far and away the best TTS voice I've encountered thus far. :)

Thanks for that too. I will check Ivona out for sure.

My favorite voices continue to be Kate and Paul by that company that we dare not speak its name. ;-) They are the most realistic male and female voice I have ever heard. They are also the biggest coming in at 250mb database.

I will see if I can offer Ivona voices at my site. I hope they have a cool affiliate program. That would be way cool.

Thanks again guys.

I also like the Emma voice from Ivona.

Check out Cereproc for some very realistic TTS voices as well. I have Heather with a Scottish accent. Very nice!
