Watching with much interest! Anyone have a DoubleTalk or Accent synthesizer? I will happily take anything as long as it isn’t iOS Fred. 😀
I actually have both a Doubletalk and an Accent SA. I don't think they'll translate too well to DMR, though.

Reckon we could make a voice pack with Espeak...
That would be trivial to do. The harder part will be equalizing it for maximum intelligibility. All the tools are there, just need to find the right values to put in. I actually think eSpeak, properly tweaked, would do quite well. Call me crazy. Go on, do it...

I might call you crazy but for the fact I happen to agree with you.

I haven't fired up eSpeak in quite awhile. With it set to English America, set the Variant to Kaukobalta, and the pitch somewhere between 85-90%. Now, which sight-impaired ham does that remind you of, just a little bit? LOL

Man, there are some weird variants. Some might be better for our purposes though, a little fuller than the default. Paul or Antonio, for example, or perhaps Ed, for that peak in the upper mids it has. Wait, is Ed talking on a Kenwood?
