  • Ironically funny, yet professional voice.

  • This is brilliant I've finally found what seems to be what I was looking for. Thank you, you've made me like this site so much more!

  • Loving this on Linux Lite. Using it for Scratch projects. Needed 120 sound files for 2345Tables project. So quick on command line.

  • Perfect on my Ubuntu system. I love ! It works on my RaspBerryPi too

  • This program is great! It is very simple, user friendly, and supports many languages​​, and I can see that there is an option to create a pause between words when generating speech, which is particularly important to me, but I don't understand how it works? Can someone explain to me? PLEASE HELP! My e-mail is: vladimirvasovicns@gmail.com I DESPERATELY need text-to-speech software for dictation that should be slow enough so that humans can write it on the paper, but I don't know how to make pauses between words in eSpeak.
