I don't know if people in this topic collect names of voice actors for english voices only or not, but I'm also interested who did voice acting for other Vocalizer voices e.g., german, italian, swedish, czech, turkish or japanese.
The new croatian voice that is available in new version of Vocalizer is called Lana, and the voice was recorded by croatian actor, jazz singer and TV speaker Jasna Bilušić (pronounced Yasna Beeloosheech). She also did the secretary voice for our mobile network VIPnet.

Where I can find that croatian voice, in Vocalizer 6 or Vocalizer Expressive?

Dude Josh and Ella are kid voices done by kids. Obviously you are not going to be able to find out who they are as they will be protected as they should be.

The entire TTS space is like this, not just Josh or Ella. The people behind these voices are often very difficult to find, plus companies don't like to disclose them. Good luck finding the voice actors behind these.

Eloquence has no-one "behind" it because it is formant synthesis rather than concatenative synthesis. You can read about the difference here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speech_synthesis

And I always asked to me how the names of loquendo voices are. Especially for the germany voices loquendo Stefan and loquendo Katrin. And the american voices loquendo Dave and loquendo Allison. These voices are awesome!

Greetings,

I don't remember the voice of Loquendo Dave quite well, but I've heard from someone that this same voice is now Microsoft David in Windows 8 and 10. Is it true?

2016-10-23 13:20:40

That would be interesting. I have a computer with win 10, I'll test this, hope I find the point where to hear the voice there.

I need to find this link again, but there was a website that had every phrase spoken by every Festival voice as a wav file. Most of the time there were about 1132 phrases they spoke.

So you guys wanted the link? Well, I found it at last! There are zip files in here, just download them. The wav files are in the wav directory, and these phrases were the ones the poor Festival folks had to read. Enjoy!

Hi everyone, I am going to revive this thread to hopefully get some sort of clarification on a few things. I'm also working on something a little exciting, I hope.
I saw a PDF file that contained instructions on how to build a speech synthesiser using a Moog Synthesiser module and various electronic manipulatives. Still, I wonder what people do exactly to model someone's voice. For instance, is eSpeak modelled after someone, or is it purely formant and not based on any model? Is there an in-between category between formant and concatenative? For instance, I heard that Eloquence and Microsoft Sam were primarily formant, but they also had some concatenative elements that were processed with digital signal processing as well.
The Wikipedia article indicated that there was a third type of speech synthesis called articulatory speech synthesis, but it didn't describe hot it was made, or at least, it didn't delve into the details of the processes needed to model someone's vocal tract to make a speech synthesiser out of it.
@FlybyChow, you said before you were interested in making your own speech synthesiser using concatenation. I.E. Using small segments of your voice along with some digital signal processing, or have someone model your vocal tract by recording different things to make an analysis. I don't know if there are accessible spectograms or whatever it is they use to replicate someone's voice using tones and noise. Anyhow, look at posts 52 and 57 of this topic. http://forum.audiogames.net/viewtopic.php?id=8877
I found these recordings in the Festvox demo. http://www.festvox.org/history/klatt.html
