Years ago, when I was dabbling with Speech synthesizers there was a company which I thought was Magna xxxx (xxxx=something)
They had a whole lot of high quality voice clips (in .wav format IIRC). I don't seem to be able to find a link to them via Google & I have lost the many voice clips that I had.
Anyone recall them, or even better have the voice libraries?

I suspect with the stutter, but if you have the version without the stutter Lee will also be very very happy ;)

A few months back I googled "phoneme sound samples" and hit a site that had a good collection of them. Sadly I didn't take a note of where that was but I'm pretty sure that was the Google search term that hit it.

EDIT: I think it was this:

ftp://sunsite.unc.edu/pub/multim...

EDIT2: having downloaded and listened to one (rename it to have a .au extension so it plays right) it looks like you have the makings of a Stephen Hawking there!

Your blood is worth bottling Ross! That's the one! Thanks muchly!
The sound clips work quite nicely with Elm-chan's ATtiny85 .wav player.

Oh, THAT's why you were asking about the stutter. This dyslexic brat didn't even see the extra p in the title.

 

"We trained hard... but it seemed that every time we were beginning to form up into a team, we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing. And a wonderful method it can be of creating the illusion of progress while producing confusion, inefficiency and demoralization." Petronius Arbiter, approx. 2000 years ago.

It is caused by a contact bounce on the pp key! :D
