Release of free software speech synthesizer framework / MBROLA replacement


In my master thesis[1] I wrote about about speech synthesis using modern algorithms. I evaluated several algorithms and wrote an implementation of an MBROLA clone that I released under GPL v3. It is based on WORLD[2] by Masanori Morise, which has been used in VOCALOID clones such as v.Connect-STAND[3]. Next step will be the creation of a multilingual voice database that supports German, English and Japanese. I also prepared a Debian source package which will import in a git repository soon. I use "gbp create-remote-repo" to upload the package to alioth.
