Some people have asked about making available the file I made that converted the Pope’s new encyclical Spe Salvi from text to speech. I had processed the file to remove references in parenthesis and footnotes to make it better to listen to.
I have two versions of the file one as an mp3 that was converted using AT&T’s Natural Voice Mike and the other in AAC format using the Alex voice the comes with OSX Leopard. Unfortunately I did not have any voices with a slight German accent.
If you want the file you can go here and select the file of your choice
