Last week I told you about an awesome (and free) update to Adobe Captivate 2019. In that post, I told you how Adobe removed most of the outdated (Flash) SWF features. But there's more to this update, and I'm loving it. Specifically, Adobe has enhanced the Text-to-Speech feature.
Choose Audio > Speech Management to open the Speech Management dialog box.
At the bottom of the dialog box, you'll see a note about ReadSpeaker. If you're a veteran Captivate developer, you'll notice that Captivate used to rely on NeoSpeech. ReadSpeaker voices replace NeoSpeech.
Click the Download new and enhanced voices link. (Note that the download is nearly 4 GB, so if your internet speed isn't fast, prepare for a long wait while the package downloads.)
Exit (quit) Captivate, extract the downloaded file, and run the installer. Once the voices are installed, restart Adobe Captivate.
Choose Window > Slide Notes, create a new note, and then write some text into the note area.
From the upper right of the Slide Note, click the uppermost check mark and then click the Text-to-Speech icon.
Select the voice you'd like and click Generate Audio.
You can preview the audio by clicking the Play icon.
