It is of course a possibility and if someone is willing to provide such
a recording, please go ahead. I personally made the experience that
numbers sound a little different when just counting them up or down in a
row. At least if I do not pay attention to make them sound more neutral.
When using them in the right context while recording, this is less of a
problem with me.
I will have to extend my script to also allow this configuration and to
cover more of those cases in an as generic as possible way. Need to
think about that...
However, even with my request on very short notice, I currently have
five voices. Three in German and two in English. I had more wicked
Problems before getting things to work , but now the system basically
does what I want it and it is fun.
The 33C3 is almost over and we will start tearing the system down
around 2016-12-13 17:00 UTC. The exchange is currently not manned all
the time with a gap after the last operator went to sleep til the first
one shows up. You might give it a try and have a listen to the currently
running state. Call +49 40 231889-3380 (only valid while the event is
still on) and request to be connected to the talking clock service.
