I sent the following to Nlbuk.
All I can say is, "Quite so.". I asked a few friends of mine to listen to a representative sample of the books and voices. Their universal comment was: "How the hell can you listen to that." It says it all. It's a waste of valuable time, and I will not fill up their forms asking various questions; they are all irrelevant. The voices are awful, so all the rest matters not a jot. What a disappointment it is! If the people at Nlb had bothered to listen, even for a few paragraphs, to each book, they should have realized that the whole quality of voice synthesis presentation is unacceptable. Full stop. End of project. Stop treating the blind as second-class, who will put up with anything, people. They wouldn't listen to this crap for a second; why should we!
Cheers in real anger,
