Description : free and open source speech synthesizer
RHVoice is a open source speech synthesizer with good quality and
perfomance. It supports Russian, English, Esperanto and Georgian
languages and can be used in text-to-speech systems (with Speech
Dispatcher for instance).
RHVoice uses statistical parametric synthesis. It relies on existing
open source speech technologies (mainly HTS and related software).
Voices are built from recordings of natural speech. They have small
footprints, because only statistical models are stored on users'
computers. And though the voices lack the naturalness of the
synthesizers which generate speech by combining segments of the
recordings themselves, they are still very intelligible and resemble the
speakers who recorded the source material.
I plan to prepare package, upload it via sponsor (found already) and
maintain by myself.
