    What is the best text to speech software on the market? I use some of them that are free online to make my videos but the quality is usually poor.

    Select and Speak Chrome extension is the best I've heard. 500 words per day free, otherwise $2.99 per month.

    You will never find something that's perfect. It's all bound to sound robotic at some point which is a bit off putting. You can check out http://tts.reallusion.com/ though to see if it works better for you.

    Why would you want text-to-speech software?? You would sound like robot. I'm assuming that the only reason for that would be that u are younger than 15 so your voice ins't changing yet and u want to sound like some successful adult. That can be fixed by recording voice and putting it in Audacity and changing pitch. The other reason - maybe u are a male who wants female voice in vids - that won't work (robotic unnatural voice).

    Finding a best is like running in a round room looking for corners.
    Best is to pick one and stick with it master it and you are done.
    Or just voiceover yourself its not that difficult.

    Usually doing the voiceover yourself is the best & cheapest you can do.
    A good voice is learnable. Unless you plan to push out hundreds of videos per day I'd suggest you do the voiceover yourself.
