We are pleased to inform you that we have made some progress with getting Festival TTS going for ROILA. As always feedback and comments are welcome. Please note that this is still work in progress.
Here are the initial results (for sake of consistency, we provide audio files of sample sentences that are also discussed elsewhere)
The output from text to speech was also passed to the Sphinx-4 speech recognizer and the recognition results were good.
Several steps are required to accomplish TTS for ROILA and ultimately to get your audio files. We will post details very soon so that everyone can have their machines talk in ROILA!
Acknowledgement: We would like to thank Steve Pomeroy for providing a sample script of how to enable Festival to speak in artificial languages. We would also like to thank Alex Juarez for helping in running Festival on Linux.
