I need TTS ( Text To Speech) for Indian voice (language : English) Free
open source software.
eSpeak is a compact open-source speech synthesizer for many platforms.
Speech synthesis is done offline, but most voices can sound very âroboticâ.
Festival uses the Festival Speech Synthesis System, an open source speech
synthesizer developed by the Centre for Speech Technology Research at the
University of Edinburgh. Like eSpeak, also synthesizes speech offline.
Flite uses CMU Flite (festival-lite), a lightweight and fast synthesis
engine that was primarily designed for small embedded machines. It
synthesizes speech offline, so no internet connection is required.
SVOX Pico TTS was the Text-to-Speech engine used in Android 1.6 âDonutâ.
Itâs an open-source small footprint application and also works offline. The
quality is rather good compared to eSpeak and Festival.
MaryTTS is an open-source TTS system written in Java. You need to set up
your own MaryTTS server.
Google TTS uses the same Text-to-Speech API which is also used by newer
Android devices. The Synthesis itself is done on Googleâs servers, so that
you need an active internet connection and also canât expect a lot of
privacy if you use this.
If you need offline tts, My suggestion is Festival.
