Rocket speed intro to TTS in Cp5

Got 4 minutes to spare. I’ve uploaded a short and to the point video overview of Text-To-Speech using Adobe Captivate 5. It includes a demo of the new French, German & British English voices as well as a step by step walk through of the simple process of adding TTS elements to your Captivate projects.

One of the most exciting aspects of Captivate 5’s TTS handling is the support for non-included voices. We know that people are trying to localize in many, many languages. We also hear from folks who prefer different, more specialized voices for different reasons. In order to support the broader needs and interests of eLearning developers, Captivate 5 actually examines the voices already installed on your computer. If you have special voices, it will find them and offer them as choices during the recording session.

As i’ve looked at this area, TTS, over the past several years, it does seem (especially with some of the recent advancements in ’emotional’ and ‘evocative’ voices) that TTS is growing more and more viable, at least as a low cost solution – and in some cases, its really just the right solution. Have a look at the video to see how it is handled in Adobe Captivate 5.

As usual, the video is available in higher res – click the 360p tab on the video to choose different resolutions.
