You can adjust the accent, rate and pitch of the voice as well as the shape of the eyes and mouth. This is a great way to experiment with the speech synthesizer, learn to type or just have fun making a funny face for your XO.

SpeakWithAlice

Is a modified version of Speak.Activity that embeds PyAIML and a chatterbot. It currently supports English and Spanish but its simple to add new languages.

By changing the voice's language, you also change the chatterbot's brain.
