Hi, Jean-Philippe MENGUAL there.
I had introduced here one year ago kali-tts, that you did feedbacks that
it was not much better than Mbrola. And I think you are right.
But on September, Hypra released a new voice category based on Voxygen.
You can test then on www.voxygen.fr. It is in French, but simple: search
for "test" string, or press c to reach the combo box with testable
choices. Then, choose it, and it will display a sentence in the
appropriate language, and you can change it. You cannot change tts
parameters, but you can get a trial release in your language contacting
Hypra. Here packs and persons:
Agnès, Arnaud, Fabienne, Lionel, Philippe
- English UK:
Bronwen, Elizabeth, Freddy, Judith, Paul
- English US:
Amanda, Bruce, Jenny, Phil
- German may be available as well.
Any test is welcome. I think we really reach a high level of quality
naturally speaking, next to Akapela or Nuance. Of course and
unfortunately, such engines are not free. But they make free software
accessible to a larger number of persons. And of course, Hypra made
speech-dispatcher module, and this is free software (in progress in its
integration in the code).
