text to speech voices and software

That site got some really good voices. Are they in the public domain? And if so, can you use them with espeak or festival or in any other way with linux?

only the site can answer that.

fwiw, i sometimes use flite. they have a nice set of voices, and show you the license. not public domain i'd guess, but something gpl-like.

Guess I have to shoot them a mail then.

Thanks, I'll give filte a go.

Any other suggestions on human-like tts voices/packages solutions, are more than welcome.

A few more.

picospeaker, try it with different pitch, speed
Code:

echo "Hi there how are you?" | picospeaker -v .8 -p -2 -r -15 -o out.wav
festival, try different voices.
Code:

festival> (SayText "Hi there, how are you?")
Code:

(voice.list)
(voice_cmu_us_awb_cg)
(voice_cmu_us_rms_cg)
(voice_cmu_us_slt_cg)
(voice_kal_diphone)
(voice_rab_diphone)

(voice_cmu_us_slt_cg) is a female voice, quite clear.

espeak, try different settings
Code:

echo "Hi there" | espeak -v mb-us3+f2 -k20 -s 190 -g 3 -p 10
