FIRST, IF THE APPLE LION FAST TALKER DEFAULT VOICE SETTINGS FOR ALEX ARE NOT APPRECIATED HERE ARE THE BEST NATURAL SOUNDING RECOMMENDED VALUES.

AFTER CAREFUL TESTING THE MOST HUMAN-LIKE, WELL MODULATED ALEX SOUND REQUIRES...

- RATE = 35% (TALKING SPEED)
- PITCH = 50% (TONE HIGH-LOW)
- INTONNATION = 50% (VOICE RISE-FALL)

THESE INPUTS ARE ASSIGNED IN THE VoiceOver UTILITY SPEECH CATEGORY UNDER THE VOICES TAB.

PLUS, A QUICK EVALUATION FOR SETTINGS IS THE STRENGTH OF ALEX NARRATION OF THE QUICK RED FOX JUMPED OVER THE LAZY BROWN DOG.
