Spanish, German, and French voices read aloud your documents
Would you like to have a native speaking Spanish voice read aloud your documents to you? Maybe you're looking for a German, French, Polish or even a Romanian voice to read a script or e-book. There is no need to search for professional voice talent. You can now use speech software to convert text in any language to MP3 audio.
One of the best speech applications is Text Speaker for reading aloud many different languages.
Native Language Voices
In addition to Text Speaker you will need to choose a native language voice. A voice determines how to pronounce words based on letter combinations. See the article Text to Speech: Talking Computers and Why We Love Them for more about voices and how text to speech software works.
Different languages have different ways to pronounce words. For instance, manual is pronounced “man yoo ul” in English and “man wal” in Spanish. An English text-to-speech voice reading Spanish text won't even be close to how a native speaker sounds. One of the challenges in any language is pronouncing words correctly. Native language voices, especially the high quality professional voices, give you a fast, easy-to-use way to hear any text pronounced in the correct manner. A native Spanish language voice will read the text with the same pronunciation as a person who speaks the language.
You can install voices that are designed to read naturally and correctly in different languages. DeskShare offers high-quality professional voices in English, Spanish, German, French, Polish and Romanian.
If you are new to a language, it can be hard to understand when someone speaks quickly. Text Speaker lets you change the speed, so that a beginner can listen to text at a slow enough speed to understand. The volume and pitch can also be changed.
Speech software for personal or business requirements
Voice over services charge a large fee for native language speakers. Speech software is low cost and can do most things you need for personal and business. You can use it to:
learn a new language
convert your documents to MP3 audio
read aloud an e-book or script
create voice message prompts
produce a radio commercial
add a voice over to your presentation
