Can you suggest any good TTS for Indian Language , Paid or free.
We are looking for Hindi, We tried Cepstral but it is not compatible with Asterisk 18.
A Google search for ‘watson tts hindi’ brought up a bunch of potentials.
I use Watson for English and Spanish TTS and am pleased with the result – even though you have to massage the text a bit like ‘Do I have your permission to record this call’ needs to be passed as ‘re cord’ so it is not pronounced like ‘phonograph record.’ I guess Watson needs to go back to AI school
My boss likes Watson so much he’s let our live VO talent go and we’re pure TTS now.
It can take xx seconds to render longer paragraphs so I cache the rendered audio using the MD5 of the text as the ‘name’ portion of the file name so that the next time that audio is needed, I check to see if
<md5>.wav exists and skip the trip to Watson – saving time and money.
Hey, could you explain to me how you get the rendered audio?
But then I enhanced it.
For production, I wrote an AGI (in C).
You have to sign up with IBM Watson to get an API key.
Then, you send a JSON formatted request and get back the rendered audio which you can write to a file.
Can anyone suggest any good TTS for Indian accent - English/Hindi , Paid or free to use with Asterisk 18.
I stumbled across Bilingual Voices for Amazon’s Polly:
Aditi speaks both Indian English (en-IN) and Hindi (hi-IN) fluently
