Overview

VoiceText Editor 4 is a text-to-speech solution engineered to help users tailor the text contents and turn them into a vocally produced-synthesized speech. It is armed with full of tools to make it easy and simple to do the synthesizing process and sound out the texts into a variety of synthesized voices.

The product also offers a set of menu selections to utilize the Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML), standard for speech synthesis, making it easy for users to tweak the contents in their favorable way possible. Other features to insert audio clip or merge it with other contents and the likes are part of the solution so, even a few selections are enough to create various works.

Further, ReadSpeaker-owned voice engines can be loaded up and dynamically synced to the solution for use in speech synthesis.
