just released the code for a basic speech synthesis engine for XNA (including 360).

http://www.brains-N-brawn.com/xnaSynth/

it's written from scratch, but uses the resources from the open source FreeTTS project. it speaks sentences, can sound out unknown words, reads integers, and can synthesize raw phonemes / diphones.

it doesn't do the natural language processing to figure out verbs / nouns, or support stressing certain syllables (since XNA does not support dynamic audio).

Thanks, casey

very cool! I love seeing all the amazing things people are creating in XNA. But you know people are just going to use it to say inappropriate things

Thanks for the source too. I'll have to mess around with it sometime

That's awesome! Hopefully, someone will use this to create something similar to Sinistar.
