Let Your Poems be Heard!
Blog Posted:5/4/2018 1:11:00 PM
I am one of the few poets who voice their poems here in the soup (Blub Blub). I have a secret - I cheat! Certainly I could record myself reading the poems, but I don't as it does not work very well and I don't like my own voice much. I use one of two, free online tools to do the job. The best and easiest is http://www.fromtexttospeech.com/ - simply download the mp3 file and post. It can be unreliable at times, so be patient. The other one is https://text2mp3.online/ . This only has one female voice, but works OK. This requires a bit of fiddling as the input text is not formatted, but you can fix this by adding a 'full-stop' after the title, and some extra 'commas' at the end of the lines, and to insert pauses where required. To save click the 'download button' and then 'right-click' on the next 'download button' and save the mp3 file with the name you choose. Cheers and happy voicing.
