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

  •        106

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.

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.

  •    Python

aeneas is a Python/C library and a set of tools to automagically synchronize audio and text (aka forced alignment). aeneas automatically generates a synchronization map between a list of text fragments and an audio file containing the narration of the text. In computer science this task is known as (automatically computing a) forced alignment.

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).

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.
