Text-to-Speech Programs on Windows 9x?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Back once again.

So, I discovered Windows 9x computers were outstanding for reading books, something which will never go obsolete. Windows 9x is perfect for the job because ebooks are never gigantic or over 4gb. However, I have two problems:

  • Where can I find some good, 9x-friendly document programs? I'm hoping these programs can open newer pdf and epub files.
  • Is there any good, free TTS voices out there? Microsoft Sam, Mary, and Mike are pretty robotic sounding. I don't expect human-like voices, but something less more comprehensible like L&H Michael and Michelle. I have not tested Microsoft Anna yet (if her voice works, I'm content).
  • Not 9x related- does anybody know where I could obtain the Siri voice used on mobile phones?

Question is, will she be a usable TTS voice? I'm simply just asking if I could find her voice anywhere on pc.

I never heard Siri on Windows. By the way what about changing voice of Sam. I believe somewhere it is their in binary.
