Seems to be a similar approach. Is it based on Windows/SAPI? I can't find voice Tina in the Windows' world.

Tina's voice is "Google US English Female".

I tricked Google translate into pronouncing each phrase/phonetic/numeral in English, recorded, cut and spliced, and played them through N1MM+.

Thanks, Tim, for the information. First version of my SW actually worked in a similar way except that I recorded the words (alpha, bravo,... one, two...) myself. Then I had to trim and adust each word. This was very very laborious. The SW then composed the message from these fragments. It looks that N1MM+ had the same idea.
My current version (in video) works quite differently. It is completely synthetic. You don't have to record anything in advance. You can play whatever at any time.

N1MM+ has it built in but I haven't gotten to that point yet.
