We present a software to read texts with emotional expression. The software is developed as part of the Emofilt open source emotional speech synthesis software. The affective storyteller consists of a text editor which offers a set of emotional speaking styles that can be used to mark up the text. The system was validated in a perception experiment and, although the number of participants wasn't very large, could show the general usability of the approach.
