This is a telephone recording, refreshed each day. Pressing 1 – 1 gives you â€œTodayâ€™s word listâ€. Pressing 1 – 2 gives you â€œTodayâ€™s passageâ€ (usually a piece from a Fairy Tale of some sort). Assorted voices, male and female, accents seem quite neutral
- http://www.research.att.com/~ttsweb/tts/demo.php – AT&T labs speech synthesizer – type any text into the box and hear it spoken back with different voices.
