    I found a video that was very well done and I'm not quite sure if he payed a professional transcriber or if it was a really good text to speech program. This sounded very professional like the voice you would hear in a movie preview.

    Just wondering if there is any software that is so good you can't quite tell if it's a program reading it. I found some free ones online but most sound like computer generated crap.

    Try Text Aloud with ATT voices. Or DSpeech (open source) with ATT voices. You should be able to source these on TPB...you'll have to play around with the voices though, some are better than others.

    Dragon naturally speaking is best for this type of work, I am personally using it, it is simply awesome, just search this forum and you will find it easily, I have also downloaded that and it is working fine.

    I'm looking for text to speech, not speech to text - unless that handles that now as well?

    Anyone tried any fiverr gigs for this sort of thing?

    Obviously not $5 per video but, still, I wonder how many you could get done for a fiver?
