We tested version 5.4.6 and in comparison to the one that comes with Fruity Loops it really sounded the same. This could be because they use the same speech synthesis, im not sure. It also offers some cool features like the ability to download more voice packs for different vocal tones. Sound cool? Download Text-to-Speech -River Past Talkative.
