Its has been a very long time since I started some programming project for my own curiosity.
And now that curiosity has reached a level of desparation.
I want to make a talking program. You know like Text-to-Speech. I searched google, but all I found was theory. I found one library FreeTTS to use with Java but I couldn't get it up running.
So, I searched and found the english phonemes. Now I read somewhere that we can generate sound wave using the phonemes in correct order(word-phoneme dictionary)
What I don't know is how to generate the sound wave?
Also, I am a CS student and have no knowledge of Signal Processing. So, please tell me what to do to make a very simple, basic TTS program using phonemes.
And if this is not the right approach, please tell me the right approach.
