Audacity version 2.3.2
Hi there. This is my first time on here and using Audacity - please be gentle ****
I am trying to get the audio created by the free Text-To-Speech program Balabolka to sound more natural and human. I have fixed the mis-pronunciation errors via spelling some words phonetically which helps, but the speech still has sharp tinny hiss when pronouncing some words, in particular words starting or ending with a ‘T, S, or G’. Hopefully you can hear it in the attached clip.
I have been playing around with some of the effects, some of which helped a little which - telephone for example - but if anyone knows any other tricks I can use to remove the sharp hiss, or make it sound more natural in general, please let me know, any advice gratefully received.
NB - it is in MP3 format as it will be combined with an image via https://mp3toolbox.net/ to create an MP4 so that it can be uploaded to youTube.
Many thanks in advance,
