Festival Text-to-Speech Online Demo
This is an interactive demo of CSTR's "Festival" speech synthesiser, which is software capable of making artificial speech in place of a real human. Festival is the most complete freeware multilingual, general-purpose synthesis system available. It is used by numerous research sites and other projects around the world. Further information is available on the Festival project page.
Synthetic speech can be used anywhere pre-recorded speech can, for example telephone call routing and information lines. However, it is equally useful where pre-recorded speech cannot be used. For example, screen-readers for the visually impaired, email/sms reading over the telephone, voice directions for in-car satellite navigation and gaming dialog to name but a few.The following voices are included in this demo at present:
- Alan - Scottish male.
- Nick - English RP male.
- Roger - English RP male
- Nina - English RP female.
- KAL - American male.
- SLT - American female.
