[Athen] Synthesized Voices and Accurate Pronunciation

Thu Sep 17 13:36:41 PDT 2009


We have a student who needs to listen to respiratory therapy text books.
Towards this end, we need to know what determines how accurately text
will be read. Is it the synthesized voice? Is it the text-to-speech
software? What text-to-speech environment is likely to read medical
texts accurately? I was wondering if the TTS feature of the Medical
version of NaturallySpeaking would do well; however, the student does
not need voice recognition....

Thanks, Ellen
