Hi, I am working on a application the requires some speech synthesis. After some reading around i decided festival and speech tools was the way to go. For recording in speech_tools, a executable program (na_record) is present. but when i use it i get the following error. ESD: record not written yet but a_record seems to be working fine so i am guessing its not a problem with device drivers. i am using ubuntu 14.04 lts. I don't know if this is a limitation or there is something wong in the setup.

Thought it would be very complicated to include speech in your programs. As it seems, in it most simplest form it can be done in two lines. Don't forget to include the System.Speech reference in your References. Enjoy!

A somewhat newer look at Peter Parente's pywin32 based speech engine. It will read text on your computer.

1.How to enable speech recognition without that annoying recognition window, and without having to press that button on that window? 2.I need to know how to recognize only the words in the XML that I created (to increase accuracy). Like: If I say "red" and that's not in the XML the recognizer will read it like "bread" or something in the XML. P.S: Sorry for my english.

Hi Guys having a bit of trouble here, I have create a form program with a set of buttons which do stuff (open,exit etc). I also got a speech recongtion which has a set of words ive put into a grammar list. the problem: i want to the program to click on a particular button when the user says a certain word i.e. user says "start" the start button is clicked! Im using a switch case as well for each different button. the only thing i think im missing is the code for just automatically clicking the button! thanks!

I am developing a Interactive Spoken Dialogue System, in which user will say something to the system and system will answer him in voice and generating facial expressions according to the voice. But, i can't get any idea that how can i generate facial expressions. Will anybody tell me that how can i start or if there is any open source package already exists then it would be very nice. If anybody know about any open source software related to this then please tell me.

Has any one successfully implemented adding additional voices to system.speech in Visual Basic 2008 or 2010 with Windows 7 64 bit? The support documentation is very old and I am not sure I will be pulling my hair out working on the newer hardware and operating systems. Thank you for your help.

Hi All, Can we use CSS to make rounded corner or bubble speech text area using CSS? I already have my application generating code to show a rectangle, and I want it to look more appealing. Any suggestions are welcome

Hello, I have been working on a speech synthesis program using JSAPI and FreeTTS. I now have the code with NO errors (!!!:)) However, when I run the code, it doesn't actually have any audio to it. If I change the text spoken to "This is text that is spoken." then it says "This is (then is sounds like) 'STOP'" really, really quickly. It also shows a few errors when I change the text. The error I've come across is: ClusterUnitDatabase: can't find tree for pau_z ClusterUnitDatabase Error: getUnitIndex: can't find unit type pau_z This appears to mean, to me, …

Just wanted to know that to develop a speech recognition software, should I download the Sphinx4 versions of the javax.speech and javax.speech.recognition API, or I should implement the API myself ?

What features of audio do I need to extract in recognizing phonemes? And what algorithms are best to use in extracting these?

Hi, I've worked with the Speech API in the past (VB6), and I'm now looking to use it in my project. For those who haven't read previous posts of mine, I'm developing an AI system in C#/.NET which learns from the internet. Well, I'm going to say I told a porky now, as my first step is to actually make it learn from a human oracle (myself). As a first experiment, I want my system to pluck an image from the net, and present it to me. I will then tell it what the image is (e.g. "tree", "plane", "dog"). …

So I get this call. Would I like an exclusive briefing on a new technology that's going to turn text into speech - the first one to do this 'native'. Forgive me, but no I don't. This typifies, in my view, the all-too-common view that a technical advance ought to be done for the sake of it. Let's examine a few facts: 1. There are numerous text to voice facilities on the Web. OK, they don't do texting but they do a lot else. 2. I'm really quite good at reading. 3. If I'm in a position in which I …
