Oh, please please please make this accessible for Mac OS X? I love these voices!
Dialogue Tool for Larynx Text To Speech
Update: Now includes a browser-based demo with some narrative so you can hear example audio & some samples from the downloadable "Game Speech Phrase" packs.
This tool is designed to make it easier to use the awesome offline (no cloud!) Text-To-Speech generation system Larynx in two ways:
- Easier "auditioning" of voices.
- Easier iterative process of turning a script into audio files for use in games or videos.
Bonus: Pre-packaged Game Speech!
Since it's not exactly trivial to get all this set up & running I've now included a couple of pre-packaged "Game Speech Phrases" packs for you to hear some of the voices & get some pre-made speech to possibly use in your games--maybe put some reverb on them and/or apply some audio filter(s) to make 'em unique for your game!
Pack One: 22 phrases for each of 8 voices.
Pack Two: 50 phrases for each of 2 voices.
See more details below...
- Install the Larynx offline Text To Speech system. (Only tested with v0.5.0.)
- Start the server with `larynx-server`.
- Download & then run this tool by opening `DialogueToolForLarynxTTS-Linux-debug-v0.1.0.x86_64` or `DialogueToolForLarynxTTS-Win64-debug-v0.1.0.exe` as appropriate.
- Read the usage instructions which I'm sure are totally just below here...
Script file format
In its most basic form the script for your character dialogue looks like this:
Alex: Have you heard about Larynx the new text-to-speech project? Bri: Wow, a new text-to-speech project? What did you say it was called? Alex: Larynx is the name. Chris: Larry's rink? Are we going to a roller derby?
But once you've decided on a specific voice for a character you can use this format:
## Alex: en-us/southern_english_female-glow_tts ## Bri: en-us/mary_ann-glow_tts ## Chris: en-us/cmu_ahw-glow_tts Alex: Have you heard about Larynx the new text-to-speech project? Bri: Wow, a new text-to-speech project? What did you say it was called? # This is a comment. Alex: Larynx is the name. Chris: Larry's rink? Are we going to a roller derby?
