Default April 2012 - Auto Voice Narration Feature

High Quality Text to Speech Feature Narrates Tours Automatically

The VisualTour Studio software has always supported the option to record voice narration for the scenes on your tours.  For those agents who do not have a good microphone or perhaps lack the time to record that narration, or for Mac users who employ the online tour builder and do not have the option to record narration, we now offer automatic narration using one of four different high quality synthesized voices.

The new feature reads the text descriptions that were entered when the tour was first created and includes a custom dictionary that allows it to recognize abbreviations like "3 BR" and pronounce them as "3 bedrooms."  For any special text that is not properly recognized, you have the option to enter words that are spelled phonetically rather than proper spelling.   That phonetic text is not, of course, shown on the tour, so you can type words using any spelling that works best.

To see more about the new feature and hear a couple of the voices, be sure to click on the video link below.

As always, the VisualTour support staff is available to take your questions and offer assistance between 8AM and 8PM Eastern time on weekdays and 9AM to 6PM Eastern on Saturdays.  Just call them toll free at 800-873-0700 or send them an email at
