Superb sound files.. really makes a tournament appear very professional (my tournaments are like a swan.. serene to all who play.. but sheer panic behind the scenes!)

I found this website (http://www.oddcast.com/home/demos/tts/tts_example.php) which allows you to type in phrases and get them spoken, you can choose your language and voice [Daniel(UK) is closest to the files Stuart provided]

There's no direct way to save the spoken text from the website, however, if you are using windows, you can use the "Stereo Mixer" in Control Panel ->Sounds->recording, you can set this to be your default sound recording device ("Stereo mixer" is normally not visible - right click in the dialog and select "disabled devices" - or simply Google!!!), this will allow you to use the bog standard sound recorder to capture (and save) anything played through your pc speakers  8)

You should use Stuarts layout, it is identical to the UK casino's (cardroom magic) only better.

If you have real player downloaded and installed as primary program an option will appear to "download movie" which will download the speech file as an mp3 file if memory serves me correctly that's what I did before I got hold of the files on this thread

Just wanted to say thank you! I've added the HQ blind level announcement to our levels. Everyone gets a kick out of it.

Hi Stuart,

First off, thank you for supplying the voice overs. I have a question for you, is there a voice over for 2500 and 5000? If so, would you be able to provide it?

Thanks in advance!

hi mesnik,  i'm afraid not, although you could easily "cut n' shut" the 25-50 and add the word thousand to the end of each amount from a thousand announcement, I experimented and made a 12,000-24,000 but I didn't have the finesse to make a good job of it, so it sounds rather tatty compared to the others, which is why it is not included on the thread.

I was using Cool Edit Pro 2, but i'm sure there will be better programs around for editing .wav's

Regards
Stuart

Hi Luigi,

The newer version of the casino software apparently has higher value soundfiles, butI am yet to be at a cardroom where I am able to access them, once the regular casinos I am at are updated I should be able to get a hold of them, but no idea when that will occur
