What's so special about FS11 and text to voice?The big issue with text to voice I'm finding is the quality of computer generated voices are iffy and licensing costs are very prohibitive for an FS addon given our tiny, tiny markets.Cheers,Bryan

It shouldn't take too much effort to expand upon that and introduce some new tech at the same time...

Yes, but quality is the issue.Even with the 3rd party voices (like AT&T Natural Voices), the voices only sound about 80 percent human.Those voices aren't cheap either.Cheers,Bryan
