Mark Dain Does anyone know of text-to-speech synthesis with a southern accent? I was only able to find 1 for macOS: (hit demo, and select "Dallas" as the voice). Unfortunately he sounds very robotic. Are there any that sound more realistic?

Paul Webb Damn, that sucks! Just tried the demo, he definitely sounds more robotic than Southern.

🦾 Lucian Marin There are plenty of realistic system voices available for download on macOS. Did you tried them all? They are under Accessibility > Speech > System Voice > Customize...

Mark Dain I think you may have missed what I was getting at. There's 6 American Male voices that come with macOS; Alex and Tom both sound the best with Alex being the default Mac voice everyone recognizes. However you can also get other accents for English; Australian, Indian, Irish, Scottish, South African and British (Daniel, Oliver). What I'm looking for is Southern American; the kind of accent you find in the deep south. I did find one company (Cepstral) that makes a text-to-speech with that accent (he's called Dallas) but it costs $45 and for the price is very robotic.
