For years now, I have always wanted my guides, reviews, previews and other articles to be read aloud to me, as this is a great way to check for errors in a document before you upload to the website. Traditionally, this would have been impossible with any sense of realism, as early voices sounded more like robots.

Natural Reader

After locating a piece of software called Natural Reader and the fact that it supports the AT&T Natural Speaking voice add ons, I am delighted to say I have found the solution now that works great for what I need. I am sure this software has many other great uses and recording into different recordable formats makes this very practical indeed.

At the moment, there is a special offer, where you can get two AT&T Natural Voices and the actual reader program for just over £22. An absolute bargain in my opinion!
