One of the most powerful features of Toufee flash moviemaker application but relatively less used is the built-in text-to-speech option. With the help of Toufee's text-to-speech engine you can add voice narrations to your flash movies without any additional burden of needing to have a "audio" file for the voiceover. Consider having to add speech to your flash videos manually by recording your own - this not only requires additional software/hardware to record the voice but also requires lots of effort to synchronize the timing of the flash movie with that of background audio. Toufee flash moviemaker saves you all the hassles so you can concentrate in creating your flash movie. To have your text read out, simply double click the text object in your flash movie to bring up the Text Editor as shown below: Click on the dropdown list as shown in the screenshot. This is where you select the Text-to-Speech character for your text. Note that Toufee offers six different characters to choose from. Each character has a different pitch and a pause so preview the voices well when you create your flash movie. Please note that you can change the character any time from the Text Editor window. Toufee's Text-to-Speech feature can be a powerful asset for your flash movies. This feature is extremely useful when if you are planning to develop flash video tutorials, personal biographies, or flash movies that narrate a story or incident etc, as adding voice narrations would create a much better impact that can really enhance a flash movie.
