    Heh, it's not really hard to tell this is a computer voice. Seems like just a built in Microsoft voice that's sped up a little.

    Sorry I got you wrong I thought you wanted something that sounds like a robot
    like the video does. In that case why don't you pay someone to do voice overs
    for you or use something like voicechanger diamond or many of the other
    voice changers and record it yourself.

    another trick if you DL the AT&T voices are to record it and then run it thru something like audacity to make the voice pitch a little different. It can do it without speeding up the voice to sound like a chipmunk or lower the pitch.

    Just want to make a point. When someone takes the time to offer you TWO links...you might want to at least acknowledge their effort. You thanked someone else who gave you basically the same link I did. Next-up MAKES Text-Aloud. You said you were looking for voices, not the software.

    It's no skin off my nose for getting no thanks, but I remember when I first joined BHW how some here would rag on noobs who came in and took and never thanked. I still defend them but will not answer any more questions I see from you.

    Being a noob doesnt excuse ignorance. FWIW

    You can use Audio Record Edit Toolbox for that. It can even change the speed a bit or pich change so youtube can*t detect if it is copyrighted music.

    Get a nice microphone and record yourself... or am I just crazy? (You CAN always run some audio-filters over it if you don't like your own voice, because really, who does?)

    I did that on about 100 articles for one of my websites... it took me much longer than I thought it would....and I have about 10 years experience in radio as a DJ. The AT&T voices are a more time efficient choice...

    now this dudes gonna "take it easy" and go back to work
