Quotation marks , also called quotes , speech marks and inverted commas , are punctuation marks used in pairs in various writing systems to set off direct speech , a quotation , or a phrase.
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.
Use the radio buttons to change voicing, nasality, lip position, and tongue position. To move the tongue, you need to specify both manner and place of articulation. Not all of the possible combinations of tongue and lip positions are used in speech; for example, if the tongue is making a stop, positioning the lips for a fricative will have no effect on the resulting sound.

What is gnuspeech ?
That is, Gnuspeech converts text strings into phonetic descriptions, aided by a pronouncing dictionary, letter-to-sound rules, rhythm and intonation models; transforms the phonetic descriptions into parameters for a low-level articulatory synthesiser; and uses these to drive an articulatory model of the human vocal tract producing an output suitable for the normal sound output devices used by GNU/Linux. The synthesiser is a tube resonance, or waveguide model that accurately models the behaviour of the real vocal tract.
