Re: seeking comparison of Cepstral+eflite and Phonix



Hi,

I'am developing a mutli-lingual solution with Festival/Mbrola.

This system works well with Alsa sound devices, and is capable
to speak english and french for the moment. New languages can be
added. I do not know in which language you are interested.

See : http://www.pollock-nageoire.net/festival/
Beware, this system is not complete and some features must still
be implemented but I would be very happy if there were
comments or report on this work.

Regards

Pierre
