Text to Speech Program





gosphinx
I am searching for a Text to speech program that must be able to convert text files to speech files and save them in MP3 or WAV files. I have a simle Microsoft Talkit, whose sound is very Un-natural and it cannot save the speech. Is there any FREE Software that can convert text to natural sounding voice and can also Save it in MP3 or WAV or any other sound format?

You can play around with this online.

The actual API isn't very expensive either.

Cepstral Text to Speech is fairly natural and quite nice and you can get it for free, but occasionally it will spit out a message that the voice isn't registered. Their "David" voice was actually used for the
Anonymous message to Scientology video that was released some time ago. But, it doesn't have the bility to save to MP3. For that, use Audacity with LAME for MP3 encoding or even FLAC encoding. By default it can save in OGG and WAV, and really if you can play them OGG files are better than MP3 files anyway.

I am also searching for a text speech. That should be natural voice. Microsoft talk it is not nice since it doesnot let it save the wav file. Can anybody find one?. I once downloaded a nice text 2 speech but you need to register it. Can you find a free one? Confused

I know Adobe Acrobat can read aloud the texts. Not sure if it records in mp3 or wav, but there is a trick: you combine with a sound recording app, those that can take whatever passes through your sound card.

There is a lot of ways a text to speech and or speech to text programs can go wrong

1) Misunderstandning, a lot of that happens in the world now

2) Acent, we all speak diffrent and sound out words diffrent, from who we are, to where we live

3)If they ever have spell check, yea that can be a pain if you say "as" and it comes out "a**" well you know what I mean. Yea I have tested it with some other programs and it actually misunderstood.

Just my thoughts and opinions Exclamation Very Happy

Text Speaker a text to speech software is excellent option. You can turn text or script into an MP3 or WAV file. Text speaker supports multiple languages like English, German, Italian, Spanish, Polish and Romanian so you can hear documents in your native language.

is very good and free.

Is there a homepage
which can speak in different languages?
zacky
I think this is what loveandormoney really meant to provide: http://ctrlq.org/code/19147-text-to-speech-php.


Anyway thanks for posting such great helpful tutorial. I need to make a program either client side or server side rather than purchasing something which does the same.
loveandormoney
Thank You for help.
For me the most easy way to use software
is

to use software in a browser.
Why?

We are on the road and we use different OS (s).
