As twobob said ^^.

Is a decryption key needed for downloading?

I also seem to recall we possibly located a kernel level bug that was probably at fault. It would all be in the original Audio Thread I think

I can't seem to grab those mega files. Links okay? I am not getting a "Download files" or "Enter decryption key" page. Just the home page. Would like to play with them : D

(Text to speech options in KUAL? maybe... would be nice to have some accessibility on the devices that can support it.)

Once I can I will give this a full testing out. Great work. thanks.
That would probably fix the soundcard problem. But (not your fault) it is a nasty fix. You can also tell by sticking your ear next to the kindle speakers when the /dev is open or not. I still don't know if it is either a problem with the sound driver, or a problem with the alsa-lib on flite.

Sorry about the broken links. I fixed them now on the original post. Check it out and let me know if you can't get the files.

Lupines.

I fixed the links. Give it a try now. I also added a mirror for both files.

I put both files on another hosting site. It seems that Mega needs flash from adobe to work, or you won't be able to get them. Hope you can get them this time. Let me know if this doesn't work.

Excellent. I have them now. many thanks!

[root@kindle root]# flite " "; flite "test test"

Works great.

Some documentation http://nerdvittles.com/aah2/flite.html


I have noted the lag time...
[root@kindle root]# flite "1 2 3 "; is about the amount of time it takes for the soundcard to kick in.

Yep, I see you added the decryption key in your post. OP links and mirror now worked fine for me. Thanks.

I believe the problem is with the executable size. I'll see if I can come up with a smaller version of this. Maybe not using the -EMBEDDED option will allow not to include all the libraries inside the binary. I'll have to look into this.

I had a look at what you did and it is awesome. It works for me. I guess the only trade off is that some of the voices have really low quality. I was looking for the one for Spanish and it uses Spain's accent, which is completely different from other Spanish accents. I thought that maybe with flite with can have all that fixed, and also without the need of using proprietary software. Do you think it is possible for you to get flite integrated into your code? I haven't looked at it, yet. So far I only got English working, but it was thinking in adding other languages.

I will have a look - at some point in the future - into creating realistic voice models that we can push out to these tools.

I refuse to be limited by the lack of available public domain resource. If they don't exist let's just read the manuals and make some. My thoughts on the matter. Will certainly be looking into what is required to make a "better" voice.
