Sorry for the late reply - I just wanted to say thanks Aaron for the link to
the text to speech online tool. It has been extremely helpful playing the
games with the dummy audio and has lead to quite a few changes in the voice
over script. Perhaps one day these text to speech things will be good enough
to prevent me having to spend so much on the voice overJ

I am developing a series of games that have a considerable amount of voice
over. Ideally I would like to record the voice over as late as possible so I
can be sure I have considered all eventualities. However I really need to

possibility is for me to just record a rough version myself however I
wondered if there is any other alternatives? Perhaps there is a program that
I can type into and it will output a wav of text to speech?
Any advice much appreciated!
