I'm doing a video project for my computer class, and I'm making a documentary of sorts. I'm looking for a text-to-speech program that allows me to export the speech file as an Mp3 so that I can use it for my video. Does anyone know of any programs that could allow me to do this? Preferably free, because I don't want to have to pay for something I'm probably only going to use once.

Thanks for your help. And if this belongs in a certain thread, I'll delete it and put it there myself.

EDIT: I have a PC... not a mac.

You use condoms more than once?
sometimes I see us in a cymbal splash or in the sound of a car crash

Get a text-to-speech program/site and then record it in Audacity.

Not mic-to-speaker though, change the input settings to StereoMix or whatever rather that FrontMic.

I googled the entire post and it came up with 95,000 results.
I don't understand.

I tried a few of the results when I googled it, and none of them would let me export it as Mp3 unless I paid for it, and I can't afford to buy anything except gas to drive to college right now.

I searched my computer for text-to-speech programs, and the only one that came up doesn't let you export it.

Just record the audio with your own voice? Almost every laptop has a microphone now.

I tried that. My laptop microphone makes me sound like I'm underwater.
Not to mention...I have a shit voice when it comes to narration. It'd be like if Napoleon Dynamite was narrating a story.

EDIT:
And I tried the audacity thing, but I dunno if I have a different version than you do or what, but there's not an option to record with anything other than the laptop microphone.

The problem with text to speech is that they sound retarded. You'd be better off either recording it yourself, or getting a friend with a better voice (if you dont like your own) to record it for you. It'll at least be decent enough to make out what is being said.
