VocaTalk generates personal podcasts that sound like audio documentaries with sound effects and music in the background. You copy and paste any content, select music and effects, generate episodes, and download to your iPod, Zune or any MP3 player.

If the content is too large, VocaTalk will automatically split it into multiple episodes of 50-60 minutes. VocaTalk uses digital signal processing technology to massage the generated speech. Listening to a VocaTalk episode is much more comfortable and fun than raw TTS (text-to-speech) technology, and it integrates with iTunes and Zune directly using podcasting technology. Generated MP3 files are always in CD quality (44.1 KHz, stereo).

There should be an image here!A VocaTalk episode is based on whatever you choose it to be. You just give the content to VocaTalk and choose music and effects. VocaTalk will read the text as it plays the music in the background. VocaTalk will use all available voices installed on your system randomly so you don’t get bored by listening to the same voice, especially during long hours of listening. It’s like a documentary audio that is narrated by multiple speakers.

VocaTalk will leave periods of silence between paragraphs to make the listening experience closer to a documentary. In order to make the listening even more comfortable, keep the focus and attract the attention, VocaTalk uses some sound effects and enhancements in the generated MP3. There are a number of different effects that you can turn on and off.
