Exact steps are outlined in the CPS help - but I used the AT&T text to speech web page, then use sound recorder to convert them from 16bit to 8bit audio

ATT site is gone. There are other alternatives posted over at communications.support.

While free, Audacity tends to have a higher learning curve for those not familiar with audio editing.
Another free online option is https://www.online-convert.com (specifically, https://audio.online-convert.com/convert-to-wav)

True. Someone recommended GoldWave to me because of batch processing. I tried that and it worked great! I already made the video before trying GoldWave.

Batch processing would be great. It’s understandable to go through a manual process to create the initial WAV files. It would be nice if they could be created with the proper format ready for import into CPS from the get go. The current three-step process seems cumbersome regardless of WAV formatter used.

When you do it over and over (for a living), it goes quick. The slowest part is the from text to speech site, which can take forever. I find that creating the files around 11 at night, things move along pretty quick.

The Gold Wave goes fast. The VA conversion utility goes fast. The code plug import goes fast. The longest thing is assigning the voice files to the channel in CPS. :oops:
