Hi Grim.

you might have to go to the source that made the voice and ask them if they would allow it to be used in that way because if the voice is copyrighted then the source may cause problems for users using it.

I hope it's possible but I'd rather everyone be safe to use it for HAL if it can be done.

would be very easy to write a plugin that would arrange sentence parts like yoda speaks for the GetResponse.

Yeah, but the cool thing is that the voice used in the TomTom sounds a lot like YODA so just speaking pronoun reversed sentences using another TTS voice might not have the desired or same effect. Just my thoughts....FWIW.
In the world of AI it's the thought that counts!

Right, I am talking about a combo package for full effect.  ;)
