Here's something fun. Site Pal has a free demo to create avatars. You will see an animated woman or man on the screen. You can choose the voice, language and effect. Type in your request and then click "Say It." I typed in:
You have won a million dollars.
You are a powerful creator.
All is well.
I tried a few of the voices and liked Fiona and Grace. There's also a link to create your own free talking character.
This is a very playful deliberate creating tool! Did you try it?
