 +==== Conclusions:​ ====
 +**eSpeak** topped the ranking: GPL, many languages​​,​ multi OS.
 +Its only flaw is its very low quality. In practice, this raises the problem of understanding.
 +It still remains that we have to integrate default, it is the most universal.
 +
 +Then comes **MBrola**, although it is not free software license, it is freely redistributable for non commercial projects, free, available in many languages ​​and it is especially good in terms of understanding.
 +We need to be able to use it.
 +
 +**Pico SVOX** has the advantage of being open source, good quality and multi OS. But it is only available in a few languages​​.
