Not Talking

I’m getting some mixed reviews for the Cockney and Yoda Talk apps.  Many of those which are low scores are from people who expected the translation to be spoken out loud back to them.  Maybe the name of the app gave them that impression?  I would love to achieve this and I know I can but only using a standard male or female voice.  That would be rubbish though.  Probably worse than nothing at all.  To do this with a voice that actually sounds like a cockney or Yoda would be hellishly difficult to do.  I can’t think of anywhere that I have seen this kind of feature before i.e a user provides some random text and the voice of a celebrity or character speaks it back to you.
