Talkie - Text-to-speech browser extension button

  •        475

Talkie is a Text-to-speech browser extension button. It lets you listen to the selected text on any part of a page — short snippets or entire news articles. Just highlight what you want to hear read aloud and hit play. Automatically detects the text language per-page, and chooses a voice in the same language to match it. Support is available for Chrome and Firefox.

Speect - Multilingual text-to-speech (TTS) system

  •    C

Speect is a multilingual text-to-speech (TTS) system. It offers a full TTS system (text analysis which decodes the text, and speech synthesis, which encodes the speech) with various API’s, as well as an environment for research and development of TTS systems and voices.

tacotron - A TensorFlow Implementation of Tacotron: A Fully End-to-End Text-To-Speech Synthesis Model

  •    Python

We train the model on three different speech datasets. LJ Speech Dataset is recently widely used as a benchmark dataset in the TTS task because it is publicly available. It has 24 hours of reasonable quality samples. Nick's audiobooks are additionally used to see if the model can learn even with less data, variable speech samples. They are 18 hours long. The World English Bible is a public domain update of the American Standard Version of 1901 into modern English. Its original audios are freely available here. Kyubyong split each chapter by verse manually and aligned the segmented audio clips to the text. They are 72 hours in total. You can download them at Kaggle Datasets.

chat.susi.ai - SUSI AI web client at https://chat.susi.ai/

  •    Javascript

Susi is an artificial intelligence system, combining pattern matching, internet data, data flow-, and inference engine principles. Through some abilities to reflect, it can remember the user input to produce deductions and personalized feedback. Its purpose is to explore the abilities of an artificial companion and to answer the remaining unanswered questions. The SUSI.AI web chat is a front-end developed for web access of SUSI. If you get speech output, then the Web API Speech Synthesis is supported by your browser and the text-to-speech features of SUSI Web Chat will work. The Web Speech API has support for all latest Chrome/-ium browsers as mentioned in the Web Speech API Mozilla docs. However there are a few bugs with some Chromium versions please check this link on how to fix them locally.

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).

eSpeak - Text to Speech

  •    C

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.
