Check out my mother’s latest find…SitePal (developed by Oddcast) allows you to add a fully customized speaking avatar to your website or email. The technology is pretty cool. Even if you don’t want or need anything like that, you may still enjoy playing around with the sample avatars and listen to Karen pronounce your name with her Australian accent or have Charles say funny phrases with a British accent. They have 20 or so voice choices that will read any text you enter…very entertaining!
