Stream News Wire – English Tom TTS Voice

March 19, 2008 • Darrell Shandrow Hilliker

Dear Victor Reader Stream Customer:

The alternative Stream software with the English U.S. male (Tom) TTS voice
is now available for download at:
http://www.humanware.com/en-canada/support/victor_reader_stream

This English alternative version 1.2 software has a male TTS voice (Tom) and
can be downloaded to replace the default software with the female Samantha
voice currently shipped on all English Streams. The Tom voice is an
alternative download zip file that contains a single version 1.2 UPG upgrade
file that you install on the Stream. If you wish to change back to Samantha
female TTS voice you can download and re-install the alternative UPG from
the same page. The functionality of the software is the same for both
downloads. Only the TTS voice differs. The complete list of new features for
version 1.2 and the installation instructions can be found in the What's New
document in the documentation list that follows the software links. After
this documentation list there are links to samples of both the Samantha and
Tom TTS voices that you can listen to.

We are currently working on a third English version 1.2 with the UK male
voice named Daniel which we expect to release soon. Again, this will be a
single UPG file with the single UK Daniel TTS voice. The link to listen to
the sample Daniel voice is on the page now.

To summarize the Stream software Installation:
– download the zip file with your choice of Samantha or Tom TTS voice
– Unzip the single UPG upgrade file. You do not require special unzip
software with Windows XP or Vista.
– Copy the UPG file to the root of your Stream SD card
– Insert the card into the Stream, connect the Stream to AC power, and turn
it on.
– The Stream will recognize the special UPG file and initiate the upgrade
process. Audio messages will inform you of the start and end of the update
process.

Thank you.
The HumanWare Support Team
