I would have found it useful to find here a note on each whether or not the program can save text as mp3 or wav file.


I can name a speech synthesizer not there, but I know almost nothing about it.... AquesTalk (is that spelled right)

There was a recent TED talk on "The Human Voicebank Initiative", in which Rupal Patel made an impassioned case for collecting a database of recordings, then producing customized voices for each synthesizer user, using software she calls "VocaliD". Unfortunately, the terms and conditions invoked read like the intention is proprietary control of the recordings donated by individuals, rather than a genuine effort to attain a public-good.
