Re: text to speech?

Dear Arun,

for reading out texts in many languages (including Hindi), there is
MBROLA

http://tcts.fpms.ac.be/synthesis/mbrola.html
(http://tcts.fpms.ac.be/synthesis/mbrola.html) .

The authors provide it for many platforms.

Searching on the web, I have found a Ruby interface for the Japanese
version of MBROLA.

http://raa.ruby-lang.org/project/mudatts/
(http://raa.ruby-lang.org/project/mudatts/)

Essentially, it involves constructing a file of phonemes (or sounds)
from
diphones
(that’s a combination of two sounds). This is what you have to do for
any
language.
This file does some adaptation of a text that you want to read out, such
as
converting
numbers to words.

I haven’t tested the Ruby program (as I don’t speak Japanese, I can’t
judge
anyway), but maybe it can be adapted to your needs.

I think you’d also find the authors of MBROLA helpful - they’ll
certainly be
grateful
for some additional Indian languages profiles.

Best regards,

Axel
