Resumen: In many countries the television broadcast of wildlife documentaries is nowadays translated from English and voiced by professional voice talents in the target language. This article discusses an alternative scenario in which text-to-speech would be used for the voicing of what is called "text-to-speech voice-over". It reports the results of an experiment in which a group of volunteers assessed excerpts voiced by synthetic voices as compared to excerpts voiced by human voices. Although human voices receive globally better assessments, results leave the door open to future research in the field.
