Utilizing RoboBlather is actually very easy. Simply start the application and start typing the words you want to have said to you. The user interface is really unappealing, and the yellow font doesn’t help matters much. Well, at least not for me, reading is difficult.
The developer should have used white text instead of black.
Alright, you must select the “Speak” option after typing or copying your text. Microsoft David should be the default voice on Windows 10, while Microsoft Zira can be selected instead. Simply select the “Stop” option to end a speech that is already in progress. Depending on the operating system you have installed on your computer, a different list of voices will be made available.
The ability to accelerate speech is something we appreciate. This can be modified from the default setting of Medium to Fast, Extra Fast, Slow, or Extra Slow. Since the default speed sounds nicer and is simpler to understand, we advise sticking with it.
The synthetic nature of the vocals is something we do not enjoy. Although we’d prefer a more human-like touch, the developer probably had little control over such things. It would have worked much better if Microsoft had given developers access to the Cortana API so they could use her voice.
There isn’t much to be done outside of what is visible at the bottom when it comes to saving, as we can see. There is no option to save files in a format other than.WAV, which can be problematic for some users. Since the file can be transformed using different software, it is not for us.
Overall, RoboBlather is a fantastic choice for folks who require text to speech software. We don’t think the design is particularly strong, and we don’t think the creators will change it in the end.
