Hey thanks! Just a minute...if you're so smart how about a reasonable freeware text to voice thingie I can download and save text audio to something convert to .wav files. Where would I find one of those?

David Janes -

I'm pretty sure you don't want to create WAV files ... they're huge.

Anyhoo:
- run Sparks!
- "Record a Podcast"
- "Import Music"
- select the WMA file
- "Save Podcast"
- select a filename

I know but what I want to do is put together these odd sound files, text to voice and only then maybe add music and I think I have to bring them into .wav first before exporting them as MP3s. I also need a text to voice program that will allow me to sound like old man Schnieder from the wiener ads.<p>I am so next thing.

David Janes -

You really want to look at Sparks!. And I'm not just pushing my own stuff here.

Have you hired staff since I looked? Hooly-fee-holy. I will have a look, David.

If you want to add voice to music or vice versa, you just create an extra track in audicity, change the 'media source' and go, no?

Arthur -

[crap I don't have audicity on this laptop installed, so I could check out how to import from other sources]

Alan -

Arthur! Where you been?

Alan -
