New Experiment: Let Software Read My Stories

This experiment was prompted by a blind relative who wanted to hear my stories. I decided to give a free text-to-voice program a crack at ‘reading’ a few of them out loud and put them up on YouTube for anyone to hear. Various family members visit her often with various internet-enabled devices in tow, so this seemed like an interesting way to go about it.

Sure, I could read them. And I might go that route one day. But money is tight and I can’t really justify (or find!) the money to provide a good microphone, a good webcam, and a quiet recording space free of the banshee wails of my two toddlers at the moment.

So for now, give the robot voice a listen.

If you’d like to hear more, subscribe to my YouTube channel. I plan on putting new ones up regularly.
