Description : British English male voice for Mbrola
This package contains an English diphone database provided in the context
of the MBROLA project see: http://tcts.fpms.ac.be/synthesis/
It provides a British English male voice (known as "Roger's voice") to be used
with the Mbrola program. It has been built from the original Roger diphones
made available by CSTR, University of Edinburgh, as part of their generic
text-to-speech system Festival.
Input files use the SAMPA phonetic notation, as adopted in other Mbrola
databases. This package also provides the correspondence with the MRPA
phonetic notation used in the original distribution of Roger's voice
in the Festival TTS system.
This is the first of a series of voices for the non-free mbrola speech synthesis
and serves as a first example for discussion. It would provide the following
virtual packages: mbrola-voice-en-uk, mbrola-voice-en, mbrola-voice
