Description: ETI-Eloquence is a software based text-to-speech
system. It generates waveforms completely algorithmically instead of by
concatenating waveforms, for maximum flexibility and naturalism. For
instance, when the user requests a deeper voice, the software simulates a
larger vocal tract, instead of simply pitch-shifting samples. It uses
high-level linguistic parsing, which obviates the need for a huge
dictionary. It handles numbers, acronyms, currency, etc. It includes
a set of annotation symbols, for placing stress on particular words,
expressing excitement/boredom, etc. Also allows phonetic input.
Supports MS SAPI.
Produces male and female voices for General American English.
Dialects under development include Alabama and Brooklyn.
- Price: Flexible license agreements on application.
