Get the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 (Required by RoboBlather)

RoboBlather is a text-to-speech application. It uses the built-in speech synthesis power of the .NET Framework 3.0 to generate speech from whatever text you paste into the edit window. You can control the speed of the voice, render the output to a .wav file, and select any of the installed voices on your machine. Different machines will have different voices available. On our development machines, these are the voices that were available:

Windows XP
Windows Vista
Windows 8
Windows 10
Voice List on Windows XP
Voice List on Windows Vista
Voice List on Windows 8
Voice List on Windows 10

The list of available voices will vary based on the software you have installed on your system, but with the .NET framework installed you should have one or more voices.

If you're on Windows 10, you can add the UK English voice Hazel by following these instructions: http://superuser.com/questions/956810/how-do-you-add-the-microsoft-hazel-text-to-speech-voice-back-to-windows-10. In addition, Microsoft Mike, Sam, and Mary can be added using the Microsoft TTS Voices v1.3 installer found in this forum thread: http://www.eightforums.com/customization/23916-microsoft-anna-windows-8-a-6.html.

When rendering speech to a .wav file, you will probably have to close RoboBlather before you can play the generated file. It seems to be one of the quirks of the speech synthsizer that it doesn't close a file when audio is rendered (because it expects to keep saying things).

RoboBlather is freeware and may be distributed freely.
