Text-to-Speech Costs – Licensing and Pricing

Tony Karrer

Text-to-Speech Examples In this post, we will look more closely at costs of Text-to-Speech and issues around TTS Voice Licensing and Pricing. The subject of TTS voice licensing and pricing is important because it helps e-learning practitioners understand which TTS tools they are legally allowed to use for their specific applications as well as letting them estimate the costs and pricing models of using these TTS tools. Strictly speaking, the vendors sell a license to use the voice software rather than selling the voice itself. Site Rate per hour www.e-learningvoices.com/price-per-minute.php

Why your community needs a license to share

The Learning Generalist

And yet I found my sensibilities challenged in this debate about sharing bird photographs under the creative commons license. As the name indicates, most of the members are birders, quite a few being bird photographers. A few days back, the owner of the group made a suggestion - to make all postings to the group subject to the Creative Commons license. In effect, as a community manager it made me think about one more thing I'd like to consider - ownership and licensing. I'm biased towards the Creative Commons licenses. You can write your own license.

Failure of Creative Commons Licenses

Tony Karrer

They are there to help set up the licenses. But that said, it also shows a failure of the current licenses. As I pointed out in my previous post, Creative Commons themselves conducted a study to understand commonly held interpretation of the understanding of the meaning of these licenses. This common interpretation is important if you are going to defend your use of licensed materials. But that leaves us with having to go and contact the license holder of each work which somewhat defeats the purpose right? What do I mean by a failure? That’s great news.

Training Software License Requirements

Tony Karrer

The issue from what I could read an interpret from various posts ( statement, article ) is that Business Objects requires Classroom Licensing for third party training organizations to teach using their software. The goal seems to be to: (a) get additional software license revenue and (b) limit "gray market" training and consulting - trainers and consultants who are not officially part of their programs. Our customers use Crystal Reports in connection with our software. I'm actually not that familiar with the issues here and don't know how software companies generally handle this.

This means you could protect the font with an All Rights Reserved copyright (preventing downloads), or you could share the font (making it available for download) under a variety of Creative Commons licenses.  Make sure you check the license for each font before you download and use it; I was able to find a decent selection of fonts available for commercial (and non-commercial) use.  Be sure to check the Shared section for licensing information. feel ya, friend.
