Bug#601596: RFH: festival -- General multi-lingual speech synthesis system
Dear Debian users and contributors,
I request assistance with maintaining the festival (and speech-tools)
package. The package is in a "good" state as of now, but it does have
a TODO list and could do with some love. While I try to do my best
with festival, since I am not familiar with the various sound
subsystems the package seems to depend on, I would be much more
comfortable if someone else steps in to oversee, assist and,
eventually, take over maintenance of the package.
If a team is willing to take over, or a team is formed for this package.
This mail has been sent with permission from the other co-maintainers
The package description is:
Festival offers a full text to speech system with various APIs, as well an
environment for development and research of speech synthesis techniques. It
includes a Scheme-based command interpreter.
Besides research into speech synthesis, festival is useful as a stand-alone
speech synthesis program. It is capable of producing clearly understandable
speech from text.
