Side topic do you know anything about lip syncing cartoons with papagayo? The phenome outs would be useful for this and I am interested in this topic for vibrochat.com

#646 Suggestions: Wanted Learning ToMake Your own voice Tutorial

Suggestions: Wanted Learning ToMake Your own voice Tutorial or data on how mbrola works or what ever engine is used in voices.

Also I wanted someone to look at papagayos broken software. Last I used it it would not output all the voice shapes and I had to manually lip sync but it was faster that hand lip syncing.

I wanted to see if espeak -ipa or espeak -x output could be mapped to img files like the .dat file that papagayo creates.

I think I need to learn how to create a dictionary to change the phenomes to lips. I think I can do this easy using the sed -e 's/TEXTTOFIND/REPLACE/g;s/REGEXPR2/replacementText/g' program.

Also I create a shortlink for google translate jp 2 en at tiny.cc/jp2en it would be cool to use that right click selected text and send to espeak.. I saw a program somewhere on the web about this.

I am liking this thread because I see potential of using espeaks phenomes for PAPAGAYO or alternative lip syncing program for cartoons or animation. I own vibrochat.com and would like IRC chat with USB +mosfet battery 1.5,3,5 volt outputs (switchable via software +mosfet resistor path) to "bobble heads" for *pokes =)

By Punkroku:

hmm... I am assuming you use the linux version:

have you tried espeak --help or espeak-ng help also you can try this alias tts="espeak-ng" && tts --help Then you will learn the options to adjust pitch and speed in espeak its -p and -s arguments to change the voice you have to select the voice using something like: espeak-ng -v pl "braterska"

see the list of voices by typing: espeak --voices I dont know how to change the default voice but you could alias it like: alias espeak="espeak -v jp" or whatever voice you choose

[espeak-ng:master] new issue: German voice mispronounces a select few words #github

[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by The1Freeman:
#643 German voice mispronounces a select few words

Using the online site to test eSpeak, the german voice mispronounces words such as "Rakete", "Polarmeer" and "Hintergrundstrahlung".

By overriding the pronounciation of these three words, they sound correctly, here are a few examples by comparing the output before and after correcting it.

Rakete Before: r'Ak@t@ After: rAk'E:t@

Polarmeer Before: p'o:larm,e:r After: po:l'arm'e:r

Hintergrundstrahlung Before: h,Int3gr'UntstrA:l,UN After: h,Int3gr'UntStr'A:lUN (the "sch" sound is oddly different, seperating Hintergrundstrahlung into two words makes it produce the proper "sch" sound)

This is however one set of eSpeak getting words wrong, it doesn't happen as often, but it does occur in some cases. Is it appropriate to create multiple issues for these, or keep them in one?

By hozosch:

That's a really hard one. Both of these entries were already there before I started working on espeak, and if you change that to hardware, it's only that word which will be spoken in English, but such other things as software, malware etc. And guide at end of words? Guide isn't spoken in English when written as a lone word then, is it?

[espeak-ng:master] New Issue Created by The1Freeman:
#642 The german voice reads german words in some cases in english

Using the development version of eSpeak under odo.lv, eSpeak will pronounce german words in english, if they contain a english word within them.

For example, "Besucherguides" and "Spezialhardware" are read in english, despite the fact that "Besucher" and "Spezial" are german words.

#641 Questions about espeak-ng

Hi. I'm Fedora 30 X 64 bit Cinnamon edition users. I'm very beginner with TTS engine on Linux though I'm now about near 4 years Linuxer.

I have difficulties with espeak-ng ......

1) is ther a GUI available for configuration of espeak-ng ? This can solve great deal of problem.

2) currently the voice is of low quality & I like to change voice. In /usr/share/espeak-ng-data/voices there are 2 folders: mb & !v I think that mb is voices while !v is for variants, isn't it ? How can I change default voice to what I prefer ? I used "espeak-ng --voices" to list available voices, then I tried "espeak-ng -v " to test voices. But how can I change default one.

3) it seem that all installed voices on my Fedora are of low quality. I'm not sure they are such or they just need to correct their parameters ?

4) if all voices of same quality & can not improved by changing their parameters, then where can I get high quality voices for espeak-ng ?

Re: [espeak-ng:master] new issue: the ability to read .epub files to .wav? #github

Willem van der Walt
 

Use cainteoir.
It can "record" to .wav files.
It also can play the epub file.
This is not an espeak-ng issue at all.

On Thu, 1 Aug 2019, Travis Siegel wrote:

epub files are zip files with various included structural files, as well as actual content.  Generally, the content is just standard html (or xml files in some cases) that contain the actual content..You'll need an epub reader to read these files.  Failing that, you can always unzip the epub file, and use your web browser to view the content.  That's exactly what I do here, and it's always worked for me.  Of course, this won't work if your epub file has encryption (in other words, DRM protection) on it, but for unprotected standard epub files, this works just fine. There's no reason espeak should be able to read these files directly.

hi there, would it be possable to have it so espeak-ng is able to read .epub files? when I type for example espeak-ng -f "test.epub" it does not read the contence of the file. it just says pk. using latest espeak-ng the file in question does not have any protection on it.

[espeak-ng:master] New Comment on Issue #640 the possibility of increesing the wpm of espeak-ng past 390 wpm?
By valdisvi:

To speed up speech more than it is supported directly, eSpeak NG uses sonic library. In on-line test site you can choose up to 1000WPM (or pass your own speed parameters in URL). To use sonic library, eSpeak NG should be compiled and built with this library included (and I don't know how it is compiled for Arch). See more at building on Linux, Mac, BSD.

I don't know about linux, but on windows, I have to run the voices at 99 percent, because at 100 percent, it breaks up too much to be useful.  It'd sure be nice if it could be increased some, but unless the issue with speech breaking up, I can't see how increasing the speed will do anybody any good.

hi there, i'm running arch linux with latest espeak-ng from the archlinux repos. would it be possible to hav the wpm increesed from 390 wpm? to say 600 wpm? currently when I output audio to a wav file the limit I believe is 390 wpm and was curious if it could be increesed? thanks, Majid Hussain
