since i was mightily impressed by the capabilities of modern text to speech software, i wanted to try out how much you can do with it, when it comes to voice acting.
i have therefore voice acted the campaign "deep blood" using such software, and by speaking one character myself.
of course this does by no means reach the quality of "real" voice acting, but it sure is better than the default TTS system which is built into the FSO engine, let alone having no voice acting at all.
so if you don't expect too much and keep in mind that this was done mostly as a "Proof of Concept"-thing, i think you will be surprised what can be done by modern TTS systems!
some of the TTS recordings sure are outclassing those done by me at times, but then i'm a really bad actor as i noticed
( i noticed i sound quite a bit like Arnold Schwarzenegger in very young, i guess you just can't hide bavarian roots, no matter how hard you try
if people think this stuff is working well enough, i might do some other small campaigns, so give feedback if you like what you hear (of course if you don't, do just the same)
i just beg you, dear feedback-giver, bear in mind that this was my first time attempt, on voice acting, TTS systems, and modding freespace in general
so without further talking let me present you the voice acted deep_blood:http://www.mediafire.com/?0dfkytddmded586
full credit for the campaign as such goes to the campaign upgrade team and its original creator, i have done nothing but the voice acting
