Speech Recognition (ASR) Demo

Speech Recognition (ASR) Demo
Text to Speech is becoming more and more wide spread in applications, mobile or not. This technology allows interaction of the application with the user on a much more personal level. It allows users to receive information without having to take their eyes off whatever they are doing. Text to speech has many different applications in many different types of software, so text to speech enable your app today with iSpeech! Enter any text in our demo and convince yourself of the quality that iSpeech text to speech has to offer. Our voices are very human-sounding and will greatly enhance any application you might want to use them in.

Download Gnuspeech 0.5 Free - An extensible, text-to-speech package, based on real-time, articulatory, speech-synthesis-by-rules 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. The associated modules are those used to develop the original spoken English databases, and they could be used for other languages. Gnuspeech is suitable for linguistic research and psycho-acoustic. Here are some key features of "Gnuspeech":

Speech synthesis Stephen Hawking is one of the most famous people using speech synthesis to communicate Speech synthesis is the artificial production of human speech. A computer system used for this purpose is called a speech synthesizer, and can be implemented in software or hardware products. A text-to-speech (TTS) system converts normal language text into speech; other systems render symbolic linguistic representations like phonetic transcriptions into speech.[1]

The software has been released as two tarballs that are available in the project Downloads area of Those wishing to contribute to the project will find the OS X (gnuspeech) and CMAKE (gnuspeechsa) sources in the Git repository on that same page. The gnuspeech suite still lacks some of the database editing components (see the Overview diagram below) but is otherwise complete and working, allowing articulatory speech synthesis of English, with control of intonation and tempo, and the ability to view the parameter tracks and intonation contours generated.

speech What is gnuspeech? gnuspeech makes it easy to produce high quality computer speech output, design new language databases, and create controlled speech stimuli for psychophysical experiments. The suite of programs uses a true articulatory model of the vocal tract and incorporates models of English rhythm and intonation based on extensive research that sets a new standard for synthetic speech. The original NeXT computer implementation is complete.

IntelGalileo/IntelGalileoGPIO Programming GPIO pins on Intel Galileo Description: Tutorial Level: INTERMEDIATE Intro This should work with either the Yocto or Debian setup. Set up 45 Amazing and Free Photoshop Actions This post was originally published a few years ago, and many of the actions originally featured are no longer available. The post has been edited to remove the dead links and to improve the quality of the actions featured. Some of the actions originally included still remain, but you’ll now find a better selection and better quality. Photoshop actions allow designers and photographers to automate common sequences for increased efficiency. If you do much work with photo editing you can certainly benefit from the time saved by having a good library of Photoshop actions.

Vocoder The vocoder was originally developed as a speech coder for telecommunications applications in the 1930s, the idea being to code speech for transmission. Transmitting the parameters of a speech model instead of a digitized representation of the speech waveform saves bandwidth in the communication channel; the parameters of the model change relatively slowly, compared to the changes in the speech waveform that they describe. Its primary use in this fashion is for secure radio communication, where voice has to be encrypted and then transmitted. The advantage of this method of "encryption" is that no "signal" is sent, but rather envelopes of the bandpass filters. The receiving unit needs to be set up in the same channel configuration to resynthesize a version of the original signal spectrum.

IPA sound generator I'm very interested in that "synthesizer", too. I searched on the Internet and the closest thing I could find was a Text-To-Speech (TTS) demo from AT&T Labs on a Web page. Please see the Source section (1) below for the link. As many other TTS applications, AT&T's lets you type text, then it "reads" it for you by generating and playing an audio file.
