AT&T Natural Voices

Although the original post is not by me, I was searching on net for TTS 7.0 a long time. I got TTS 5.0, If someone has TTS 7.0 please post.

The AT&T Natural Voices TTS Engine is highly flexible and can pronounce words exactly the way you want it to. The engine includes language and voice-specific custom dictionaries that enable users to define the pronunciation of certain words. Users can also customize how the engine reads certain acronyms and abbreviations, and adjust the speaking rate, volume and voice. This technology is highly used in applications (such as e-books) where the most natural-sounding voices are critical to user acceptance.
