Chipspeech is described as 'chipspeech is a vintage-style speech synthesizer which recreates the sound of famous 80's voice synthesis chips. It features 12 different voices, each with its own characteristic timbre'. There are nine alternatives to Chipspeech for Windows, Mac, Linux, Online / Web-based and iPad. The best alternative is VOCALOID. It's not free, so if you're looking for a free alternative, you could try DeepVocal or Alter/Ego. Other great apps like Chipspeech are Synthesizer V (Paid), Emvoice (Paid), UTAU (Freemium) and RenoidPlayer (Free).
Alter/Ego is based on the award winning technology featured in chipspeech but instead of targeting Vintage voice technology, it focuses on more ‘modern’ (1990+) singing synthesis algorithms and research.

Alter/Ego vs Chipspeech opinions
pros, cons and recent comments
Alter/Ego is a free version of Chipspeech focused on modern vocals, rather than vintage vocals. Since Alter/Ego and Chipspeech are both made by Plogue, they have similar UI and features. The two engines even share the character "Daisy," who has been sadly discontinued. The main difference between Chipspeech and Alter/Ego is the removal of the "circuit bending" feature found in Chipspeech.
Renoid is based on the idea of Sato-san, the Renoise-Gate webmaster. Renoid is a virtual singer system using Renoise XRNI or SoundFont SF2 sound library and cascaded pitch-corrector. Through this, virtual singing can be used without any special program.
eCantorix is a singing synthesis frontend for espeak. It works by using espeak to generate raw speech samples, then adjusting their pitch and length and finally creating a LMMS project file referencing the samples in sync to the input file.
