I need help .... strange request ... website that has someone announcing YEARS

I'm making a compilation CD for my mother, and its like a History of Music, from 1957 to 1995, and I'd like to have someone announcing the year for each song.

Is there a website that has short MP3's of someone saying "1957" and "1984" and "1990" etc?

Go here: http://www.cfs-technologies.com/home/?id=1.4

Download software and run

Type in the text you want the software to say ("1957" or "Nineteen fifty-seven", etc.)

Adjust the settings to have the voice the way you want it to sound

Save as wav file

It'll sound a little robotic, but it'll be easier than looking around to find samples of a human voice saying exactly what you need it to.
