04/01/2016: Storytime Pup - How it All Started (Part VII) Silly Voices.

     The next dilemma was a voice for Storytime Pup.  My adult male voice just wouldn't fit the bill.  And my wife's voice wasn't right either.  So, I set out to find a voice synthesizer program.  I planned to alter the pitch and run it through an equalizer until I found a suitable voice.
     I tested about a dozen different voice synthesizers until I found one which gave a suitable voice, without sounding robotic.  I ended up choosing Voxal.  I ran some final tests by recording some children's books in Audacity, while running Voxal in the background.  Then I imported these audios into Sony Vegas and overlaid them against some video.  The look and sound was good and I was pleased.  So, this was the final technical piece of the puzzle.  We had what we needed to shoot video.
