Hi Lorraine,

I really like the Acapela voices. They work with both Natural Reader (works with all paid versions) (for windows and Mac) and Voice Dream Reader / Writer (IOS and Android)

Dear All,

I am working with a student who has sleep apnea and finds reading and listening to monotone voices on a computer triggers her sleep. She wants to try text to speech to keep herself awake. She finds some of the voices very monotonous and difficult to follow. Has anyone found any voices that sound less synthesized and sound more natural that would be helpful for this student.
