text to speech voices and software


fromtexttospeech
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.

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.
