eSpeak - Text to Speech

  •        6344

eSpeak is a compact open source software speech synthesizer for English and other languages. eSpeak uses a formant synthesis method. This allows many languages to be provided in a small size. It supports SAPI5 version for Windows, so it can be used with screen-readers and other programs that support the Windows SAPI5 interface. It can translate text into phoneme codes, so it could be adapted as a front end for another speech synthesis engine.

espeak - eSpeak NG is an open source speech synthesizer that supports 99 languages and accents.

  •    C

The eSpeak NG (Next Generation) Text-to-Speech program is an open source speech synthesizer that supports 100 languages and accents. It is based on the eSpeak engine created by Jonathan Duddington. It uses spectral formant synthesis by default which sounds robotic, but can be configured to use Klatt formant synthesis or MBROLA to give it a more natural sound. See the CHANGELOG for a description of the changes in the various releases and with the eSpeak project.

p5.speech - Web Audio Speech Synthesis / Recognition for p5.js

  •    Javascript

p5.speech is a JavaScript library that provides simple, clear access to the Web Speech and Speech Recognition APIs, allowing for the easy creation of sketches that can talk and listen. It consists of two object classes (p5.Speech and p5.SpeechRec) along with accessor functions to speak and listen for text, change parameters (synthesis voices, recognition models, etc.), and retrieve callbacks from the system. Speech recognition requires launching from a server (e.g. a python simpleserver on a local machine).

espnet - End-to-End Speech Processing Toolkit

  •    Shell

ESPnet is an end-to-end speech processing toolkit, mainly focuses on end-to-end speech recognition, and end-to-end text-to-speech. ESPnet uses chainer and pytorch as a main deep learning engine, and also follows Kaldi style data processing, feature extraction/format, and recipes to provide a complete setup for speech recognition and other speech processing experiments. To use cuda (and cudnn), make sure to set paths in your .bashrc or .bash_profile appropriately.

stt-benchmark - speech to text benchmark framework

  •    Python

This is a minimalist and extensible framework for benchmarking different speech-to-text engines. It has been developed and tested on Ubuntu 18.04 with Python3.6. This framework has been developed by Picovoice as part of the project Cheetah. Cheetah is Picovoice's speech-to-text engine specifically designed for IoT applications. Deep learning has been the main driver in recent improvements in speech recognition. But due to stringent compute/storage limitations of IoT platforms it is most beneficial to the cloud-based engines. Picovoice's proprietary deep learning technology enables transferring these improvements to IoT platforms with much lower CPU/memory footprint. The goal is to be able to run Cheetah on any platform with a C Compiler and a few MB of memory.

HTK - Speech Recognition Toolkit

  •    C

The Hidden Markov Model Toolkit (HTK) is a portable toolkit for building and manipulating hidden Markov models. HTK is primarily used for speech recognition research although it has been used for numerous other applications including research into speech synthesis, character recognition and DNA sequencing. HTK is in use at hundreds of sites worldwide.

sonus - :speech_balloon: /so.nus/ STT (speech to text) for Node with offline hotword detection

  •    Javascript

Sonus lets you quickly and easily add a VUI (Voice User Interface) to any hardware or software project. Just like Alexa, Google Now, and Siri, Sonus is always listening offline for a customizable hotword. Once that hotword is detected your speech is streamed to the cloud recognition service of your choice - then you get the results. Generally, running npm install should suffice. This module however, requires you to install SoX.

SpeakRight Framework - Helps to build Speech Recognition Applications

  •    Java

SpeakRight is an Java framework for writing speech recognition applications in VoiceXML. Dynamic generation of VoiceXML is done using the popular StringTemplate templating framework. Although VoiceXML uses a similar web architecture as HTML, the needs of a speech app are very different. SpeakRight lives in application code layer, typically in a servlet. The SpeakRight runtime dynamically generates VoiceXML pages, one per HTTP request.
