Impressive, natural-sounding voices for Windows

As far as I can tell, Ivona Text-to-Speech Demo is an working demo to encourage uses to buy Ivona Voices 2 for Windows. It allows you to demo and play with various voices, and purchase them for use with Windows for $45/ea or $123/family. It sounds and works very natural, so I'm curious how Voices 2 will work with Windows 8 or whether IVONA is working on a Metro native-Windows app?

Good app but has a bug

the audio stops before reading being finished when there are "," in the article. You guys may have leaved the time interval of "," out of the calculation of total time span by mistake.

the voices are really natural and I would rather listen to it read to me then using my eyes. its smooth and life like and very easy too use. cant wait for the full version for my surface!

I love this program & the voices and the odd part is, these TTS voices remind me of GoAnimate! (which I already quit because I got bored of it).

volume doesn't work for program, bad program.

There is no volume so the program serves absolutely no purpose and is a waste of time.
