    Hi there, I am interested in contributing my voice to eSpeak.  I have some professional experience as a reader:

    And I do quite a bit of reading on my YouTube channels:

    A friend of mine has recently become blind and in my research of computing options it occurred to me that it would be nice to have a natural voice that eSpeak can use.  Is there such a database, and if so, how would I go about contributing to it?

    No, eSpeak is not suitable for this.  It generates the speech artificially, not by processing recorded samples of human speech.

    Some other speech synthesizers do use human speech, for example the 'festival' and 'mbrola' projects.
