Has anyone found a relatively simple to use TTS that would produce an awesome "Robot" voice?? I have Ultra HAL but it is loaded with glitches. I'd like to be able to change the default voice ( I have Microsoft Anna) to a really nice robot sound. Any help appreciated.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Synthiam ARC Pro is a cool new tool that will help unleash your creativity with programming robots in just seconds!
If you want to use recorded bits instead of TTS, there are a couple of decent voice changer software apps that can do a good robot modification to your own voice. I have only played with ones on Android, but I am sure some searching would come up with some windows apps or web services.
For me, its either that or go 'lifelike'
A few years back I bought some AT&T Natural Voices. They are still available. Looks like they cost about $35 bucks. Well worth it I though. The two I have are so good they freak my wife out sometimes when the TTS engine says something.

You can also use the AT&T Labs TTS to hear the voices they have for sale and also download any you want to use for your project:

I would like a robot voice like the Cylons from BSG....you can do this with voice changers....but have not seen a TTS engine for it.
And it has a old robot filter . The PVC pipe filter is pretty good too. With a mp3 trigger and 250 responses you could have a almost endless amount of questions . I'm not sure if the builder software has a limit on commands that are voice activated. J.W.
