Journal Journal: Okay Okay I give already.

Arrg this is the fifth day in a row that I have been inflicted with mod points.

This is what I get for modding responsibly. This time I'm just going to blow them by modding +5 posts as trolls.

I know I could just turn off moderation, but that would be admitting that I'm not man enough to handle them.

Damn you slashdot! Stop stalking me!

Journal Journal: Searching for SHODAN 2

I'm currently looking for some free (beer and/or speech) programs for TTS that might be useful for making something that sounds like SHODAN of system shock fame.

If anyone has any experience with this sort of thing please comment because I do not have clue zero about this stuff.

Update: I have looked into source forge TTS systems, and have found a few things that look promising, but they all seem to use precompiled voice modules so they can't be modded easilly to do what I want. If I could find the proper voices it should be possible to play them in sequence and simultaneously in order to produce the various stops, starts, and tone shifts that SHODAN uses.
