I made a small error in my comment to the subject about branding. I said the bit between TTS and raucaus music was an advert for AHH, but of course it is for

Now, I like the TTS. It gives me the chance to decide early whether to carry on listening, or press delete and go to sleep.

But the current TTS engine/settings used are boring. She sounds like a woman who has been awake for a week continuously. No prosody, no intonation. eSpeak is much better IMHO.

It could also speak faster for me personally, a lot faster.

But I know all you photon-dependent types won't agree ;-)

The TTS voice

I like very much the outro voice you are using, can you tell me what you use to generate it ? I found HPR just a short time ago and have been enjoying very much listening to all the shows. Have even started thinking about answering the call and recording an intro myself .. not sure 100% yet.

keep up all the great work thanks for your time
