    Great game. Anybody else play it?

    I'll give $10 to whoever creates a Text-To-Speech voice of GLaDOS for Mac OS X :)

    That would be cool, but I dont think it will work. Dont they need the voice actress?

    If they can do it, I would be happy though!

    Sorry to bump up this old thread, but I'd really like to see Valve work with Apple to make GlaDOS a default voice for Mac OS X. :cool:

    Otherwise, has anyone found any online tool to get audio files from written text?

    GLaDOS wasn't actually a speech synth, it was an actress reading lines while trying mimic a speech synth she was listening to. Oh, and autotune on "Still Alive" was just for effect, she is actually quite a good singer.

    That said, if someone can get the "say" command to sound remotely like her, I will be in heaven. :p

    I don't think VALVe has to make it, or even Ellen McClain. You could probably just sample all know GLaDOS quotes, pass them through some sort of artificial neural network, and get a good GLaDOS voice synthesizer.
