There's no shortage of quality text-to-speech voices available for Android users and now Code Factory, who already has made available a version of Eloquence for Android, has added to the available options by releasing Vocalizer voices for the platform. Vocalizer voices are most commonly associated with the iPhone, including Samantha which is the default United States voice. Similar to Acapela, a free app allows users to browse available voices (more than 80 in all) and individual voices can be purchased for $3.99 each. Early reports indicate the voices are quite responsive. Have you tried out any of the new Vocalizer voices for Android? Let us know what you think.Source: Google Play
I downloaded the Vocalizer application for Android and Ava, one of the voices, since they didn't have Jill's voice, which I thought was strange, since Jill is also one of the Vocalizer voices. The voice is high quality for the most part, but there are some flaws. The first is that sometimes, words are not clearly pronounced. The volume and initial speeds could be improved. While the application is indeed responsive, I had to change the rate in the text to speech settings to a faster speed for the voice to sound decent. Overall, this is a decent effort, but improvements are needed.
