I was wondering if the Orca project has considered using larger stored speech units for the speech synthesizer in order to improve speech quality.

Hi Melissa,

Orca is simply a screen reading software. It doesn't actually do the speech synthesis, it sends the text to be spoken to other software that does the actual speaking.

There are a number of synthetic speech synthesis packages supported by Orca, though the one you're likely hearing is Espeak which is normally the default speech synthesiser due to its small size, liberal license andd responsiveness.

Assuming it is indeed Espeak that you are hearing and therefore enquiring about, you may find more joy at the Espeak website
