Lado A / Lado B

Where can I find recordings of a voice saying "Side A" and "Side B" in Spanish, to reuse on a tape I'm making?

I'll be satisfied to pull them out of larger audio if I need to, but my usually extensive capacity at google is failing me here. A tip of my hat to anyone with a suggestion!

I might be missing something here- but couldn't you record yourself ?

That's what I was thinking. Audacity and a cheap microphone and you're good to go, as long as you know the Spanish and don't mind using your own voice or the voice of someone you know.

Response by poster: I certainly could. I'm looking for it to sound a bit different and official though (you know, typical indie pretentiousness at work here), and that I am less likely to pull off with my one semester of introductory Spanish and low quality mics.

You can try a Spanish text-to-speech application like this online one here.

I imagine the best way to do this is playing with some of the text-to-speech tools available online.

I tried out the first one, typing "Lado, A" and came up with this, but I am sure if you poked around a bit, you would come up with something better.

Good luck!

Best answer: AT&T has a good one.

Do you like this?

Response by poster: The AT&T is rises above expectations! Thank you.

You got the wrong words: "side a / side b" should be "cara a / cara b" (cara=face) in spanish. Maybe that's why you're having no luck with google.

In Latin America, lado is used for tapes instead of cara.
