I recently stumbled across this very interesting page. It explains in detail how to create your own TomTom voice, and so I set out for an evening with my daughter and Audacity to record our very own TomTom voice.
The nifty part is normalizing the different samples, fortunately Audacity is really good at that. Record all 59 separate phrases, then run them through viftoolx and create the right voice.
You will still need to jump back to the excellent instructions at this page, to update your .vif file. Then there is the additional icon, which won’t show up on a modern TomTom however. So without much further introduction, download Noa right from this page.
