[ACCEPTED]-open source text to speech library-text-to-speech
Festival is an open source text-to-speech system.
Stanford 10 uses it for their Natural Language Processing 9 class, and they have up-to-date instructions 8 about installation on this cs224s homework page. Installation 7 on Mac OS X requires a couple patches, which 6 they've wrapped into a handy install script.
There are 5 alternate voices you can use which sound 4 noticeably better than the stock ones. You can find 3 information on these voices in this forum 2 post: How to setup more realistic voices in Festival. Those instructions are for Ubuntu, but 1 the voices work with any Festival installation.
you can go for Festival worked nice for me.
I have used flite in an embedded server. It has 2 a small footprint and comes with a single 1 voice
eSpeak is another lightweight TTS. More robotty 1 than Festival.

Anyone 4 experiences with MARY TTS? Or does it have 3 a flaw (because noone mentioned it before)? More 2 links:
