Getting familiar with the technology

Offline Text-to-Speech (or speech synthesis), what is it?

Text-to-Speech (TTS), also referred to as speech synthesis, is a technology that generates speech from written text. Its fundamental process involves the conversion of graphemes (written characters) into their corresponding phonemes (speech sounds).

Through machine learning, the TTS system is able to accurately and naturally pronounce words and sentences, emulating the nuances of human speech. With the addition of SSML (Speech Synthesis Markup Language), extensive customization options allow for adjustments in pitch, timbre, volume, speed, and more, offering a personalized and lifelike auditory experience.

Features

A fully customizable and offline Text-to-Speech engine

Different voice, gender, quality to choose from…

We proudly gather a very heterogeneous set of TTS voices. Our resources cover multiple genders and voices of different age ranges, in more than 60 different languages.

Voice quality is also important. To comply with most hardware requirements, we provide different quality levels: from compact to high. It allows our users to chose the perfect quality/resource size ratio.

Give it a twist with customized SSML

Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) is a specific language used to transform the way TTS engines are reading the provided text.

Tone, height, pitch, timbre, speed, emphasis… are the kind of parameters that can be personnalized.

A typical SSML tag looks like this : <say-as interpret-as”>VDK</say-as> to spell the word VDK instead of trying to pronounce it as a whole.
