It wasn't until almost a week into this TTS discovery voyage that I found Mary. Not a human named Mary; a text-to-speech engine named Mary. Mary is an open source application with the downside, for many, of being a Java app. That may be a downside for you, but for me, with my options being limited day by disappointing day, Mary just might be the girl of my dreams. Listen to what Mary has to say, with my thanks to the Moody Blues' "Days of Future Passed." What an amazing difference. Amazing.
