Anybody have experience with getting Text-To-Speech running in OpenFrameworks on the Raspberry PI?
I have found https://github.com/kashimAstro/ofxEspeakSynth by @kashim which I guess would that work for Raspberry? But the voice is very synthetic (here is a sample: http://espeak.sourceforge.net/samples/raven.ogg ) , so was looking for more natural sounding options?
Any input much appreciated!
if you install the “espeak-data” package,
(install on debian-based os:
apt-get install espeak-date )
you can play with different voices and languages, check out mbrola voice of espeak
are the voices called with mb-* prefix.
usually you are in this path:
if you play with the parameters of struct ESParam of ofxEspeakSynth,
you can have different results.
es.language="en_dict"; <------------ check different language
list language only en:
alternative advice: festival pack.
Thanks a lot, will check it out
