As apart of the UWS Summer Student Research program, an automated installer for Linux to setup and configure ROILA is being developed. This system is designed to automate much of the manual labour for setting up and configuring Sphinx and Festival on a Linux system.
Also being developed is a Java Library, which will allow you to make calls to Sphinx and Festival within your own Java program. This will allow much more flexibility with developing software that uses ROILA.
Keep an eye out on this website for more information towards the end of February.
