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.

When you can't be there in person, but you want to send along a PowerPoint deck in your place, there are a few reasons why you might want to use a slide-sharing site.

New E-Learning Rankings: Authoring Tools

eLearning 24-7

Listings can always be found on a new page called “rankings” which will appear in one month – thus eliminating the need to do a search (if applicable). I’m not a lead gen for the vendors listed – rather the goal is to provide you with vendors that meet numerous criteria including UI, features, support/service, mobile, feedback from current and past clients and future game plans. I always prefer going from 10 to 1, it builds excitement. #10:

Ghost Edition – Top 10 Authoring Tools for 2013

eLearning 24-7

Welcome to my yearly Halloween Edition. Each one has a frightful story to tell. What I like about this product includes the ability to output to HTML5, works on mobile devices, is extremely easy to use, appears within PowerPoint and SCORM. A newbie to the rankings.

Summer Course Authoring Tool Rankings – Top Ten

Fun - just like that pool party you are going to have in July – I am expecting an invite BTW. #9 Perhaps you need a summertime refreshment to lower the flow. Text to speech – Very nice – everyone should offer this feature.

The Latest: Rapid Content Authoring Tool Market

eLearning 24-7

The RCAT (rapid content authoring tool) market continues to be healthy with nothing to slow it down – uh, except maybe one thing (more on that later). Yeah, I know we have just jumped into January, but in a review of the past several months, authoring tools continue to follow a similar path amongst themselves with certain feature sets. However, where you would expect some to move towards – they haven’t, which is disappointing on multiple tiers.
