Voice Selection

Supports Windows Text To Speech, Google Cloud or Amazon Polly voices

By default, EDCoPilot will use your pre-installed Windows Text To Speech voices, which you can set in the Voice Settings panel. You can also add Windows TTS compatible voices from 3rd parties such as Cereproc.

In addition, EDCoPilot supports voices rendered by Google Cloud or Amazon Polly, which produce a more natural sounding voice.  Note: Each has a free usage quota every month, before overage fees become billable.

You can switch between voices using the Voice Settings panel, or via VoiceAttack voice commands.
