Text To Speech Synthesizers

The eLearning Coach

This is how you start to think about voice characters after listening to them through text to speech synthesizers (TTS). When Adobe included a text to speech application in Captivate 4, I began to think that TTS might be a viable option in certain situations. For example, text to speech software is certainly a viable approach for providing accessibility to visually impaired persons. Share this on Facebook.

Text-to-Speech Functionality in Captivate

Integrated Learnings

Many eLearning development tools allow you to easily record narration with your content, including Adobe Presenter and Adobe Captivate. However, what if you don’t have the budget to hire the talent to make it sound professional? What if you simply do not have the time to devote to recording audio in the first place? Adobe Captivate includes a text-to-speech function that allows seamless narration without having to do any recording.

When are System Simulations Appropriate?

Integrated Learnings

They are a great way to learn system navigation without using the actual system. A learner can watch the steps in a procedure with text describing what is happening. Or, you can use audio using a recorded narration or text-to-speech technology. While this may be a good way to introduce system navigation, it lacks the interaction required for the learner to truly get “hands on” experience in using the system. By Dean Hawkinson.
