Aurora Home Page
Aurora's speech synthesizer support is unmatched. We support industry standards such as Microsoft SAPI, and SSIL and supply our own AVx drivers which offer advanced functionality for select synthesizers. Aurora is also the only product which offers support for older free synthesizers like TextAssist DecTalk and Monolog on Windows 9x platforms.
Below is a list of the synthesizers we support. If you have a synthesizer that isn't on this list, call us to see if it is supported, it probably is.

* Since we don't own the SSIL standard and have no access to source or any method to fix problems with the drivers, support for these drivers is limited to a best effort basis.
