Sorry if this is the wrong forum.

Is anyone aware of a text to speech program that Wary will run? I'd like one that converts the file to MP3.

I made a couple of GUi frontends for flite here that will make mp3's, one is gtkdialog3 the other gtkdialog4 http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=513837#513837

Or, you could try playing around with espeak. I just uploaded new version here.

To do an mp3 you would do something like:

Code:
espeak -f whateverfile.txt -w whateverfile.wav | wav2mp3


N.B.1 You would need to play around with the voices to get one satisfying to your ears.

N.B.2 I needed to modify /usr/bin/wav2mp3, to get output to current directory, from:

Code:
OUT_DIR="./wav2mp3"


to:

Code:
OUT_DIR=`pwd`

Thank you, Ariel. I've downloaded them and will try them out. I didn't have any luck getting flite to work, but I have been playing with espeak.

Have any of you tried Free TTS?

2nd Speech Center works very well with Wine. I have been using it for a long time (it isn't free though if that sort of thing worries you). TTSReader is free but buggy when last I ran it in Wine. May perform better with a newer version of Wine. TextaloudMP3 also works.
