My Goal: Voice Overs that can naturally say dynamic numbers in text. For example, when you sign on your character, GOD says "Welcome. You have x sheep left." The key is to have it play naturally without that auto-dialer sound: "Hello... player, you haveFive .... hundred .. gold left in your account."
I've done a system that technically works, but it sounds clunky (more like the latter example). I want to avoid recording each number for each inflection situation (excited, bored, end of sentance, compound numbers like one versus oneHundred...).
Has anyone figured this out? Has anyone simply seen games that have done this well?
Alternatively, has anyone had text-to-speech that doesn't totally suck? I guess it would be pretty cool to not have to re-record each time I change the text... and it would save space too... i digress
