Dudeist literature on audio
« on: January 23, 2014, 06:48:34 PM »
Hey there Dudes,

I was just sitting in the tub, sipping a local brew and had an idea. I often want to take Dudeist texts into the bath with me, but the thought of toting a paperback copy of the Abide Guide into my aquatic relaxation chamber is just too exhausting. The wet fingers, the extended arms-- these things really get in the way of getting my Dude on. What I'd like to have is an audio file of our Dudeist cannon that I can let soak in while I'm soaking in. You dig?

Anybody else ever wished for the same kind of thing? I have to say that I can't see a more suitable way for taking in the lazy message of the Dude than through the recorded spoken word.
The clouds above us come together and disperse;
The breeze in the courtyard departs and returns.
Life is like that, so why not relax?
Who can keep us from celebrating?

People could volunteer to read parts of it. Sort of a community audiobook, should the Dudely Lama approve such.

Exactly what I was thinking, Masked Dude, if enough people are interested in participating. Nice, man!

My TTS voice is an Irish girl. May next to try. The only minus is that they lack inflection. This is a tech limitation that I've discussed on other forums.

But until there's an audio version, my Irish girl voice will suffice. :)

Oh man where did you get your dll's etc for that, the Irish accent is my cryptonite (turns me into even more of a gibbering wreck than anything else), all I've got is MS Mary for my software.

It's an Android voice I got for US$1.62 from a Scottish company. The voices are based on real people. This voice is called Caitlin.
