Link Of The Week- Hear Your Book

TalkingToTheHandHave you ever wondered what your story sounds like spoken aloud? Would you like to hear how the flow of your varied sentence structures fit together? Have you repeated words?

All these questions can be answered with this week’s Link Of The Week. It is a text to speech software that uses natural sounding voices and it’s free! (There’s also a paid version but the free one is quite good.) There are a number of uses for this program, check them out.

By the way…..did I mention it was free?!?

  1. Thanks for the link!

  2. You are so welcome! I hope you enjoy it.

  3. Interesting. My books are produced as audiobooks by Sci-Fi Publishing in the US. Hearing the actor’s voice narrate the story gives goose bumps 🙂

  4. Jenn has her books on audio as well and it does give you the goosebumps! This is just to be an extra tool to help with editing and such. Thanks for dropping in!

  5. Pretty good. Sounds like the built-in speech feature of Mac computers.

  6. Not bad. He sounds a bit like a sports reporter, and focuses on ‘s and ‘d a bit. Tweeted and shared on FB.

  7. I believe the ‘paid for’ version has more options for voices etc. I thought for a free bit of software- it wasn’t half bad. Glad you enjoyed it.

    Great link, Stacey!

  9. I know, I do the same thing. I especially like typing in funny things to say to my husband!!
