I posted this question in meta, to allow the community to verify whether or not it's on topic before release. I am unsure if this is the recommended procedure.
I was told by another writer that editing your work by allowing the computer to read it back through voice synthesis allows the writer to hear every word. This is in opposition to re-reading the work through paraphrase and memorization. This makes sense in terms of editing, because the goal of editing is to read the work in the lens of the another reader, not you.
However there is a difference between a computer voice synthesis and an actual human. A human can pronounce the words better and compose each sentence in its intended melody of syllables. To my knowledge computer voice synthesis cannot dictate excellent pronunciation, nor compose a melody. Voice synthesis reads the work in a brutality butchered manner.
I tried voice synthesis a few minutes, and it figuratively felt like my ears were bleeding and I wanted to turn it off. I now have a question about my voice synthesis experience. Should I try to rewrite my work to sound as pleasant as possible through voice synthesis, or is voice synthesis so butchering, it simply cannot be done?
Is editing your work using voice synthesis too hard core?
