Submitted:  Jan 10 2004

Description:

KSayIt is a small KDE3 utilitiy for Linux that simply speaks a given textfile in a
very high quality, i.e. sound and pronounciation of the spoken text should be as (human)
natural as possible. To achieve this, KSayIt uses natively Text-To-Speech systems like
MBrola, any TTS system that can be controlled via a command line or any TTS system that
is supported by the upcoming KDE TTS system (i.e. Festival).
KSayIt offers three user interfaces: A simple text editor window in which you can enter
or paste text that should be spoken after pressing a play button, as well as an icon
in the systemtray that starts to speak by a single mouseclick the actual content
of the clipboard (if it contains something that looks like text). As a KDE application it
offers also a DCOP interface for the say and shut-up action (see 'kdcop').
Finally KSayIt provides an effectstack to postprocess the sound of the voice (currently
only a Freeverb effect is included)




Changelog:

0.7.1 pipefilt is no longer required.
0.7.2 Bug with KDE3.2 solved.
0.7.3 Problem with QT3.3 solved.
0.8.0
KSayIt now interfaces to various TTS systems via loadable modules (plugins).
Currently the following TTS plugins are in the package:
- Native support for MBrola/txt2pho.
- Support for any user defined command that accepts text from stdin,
therefore KSayIt can now speak languages other than German.
- Support for the upcoming KDE TTS Daemon (KTTSD is part of the
kdenonbeta package).

Additional controls (Pause, Resume, Next Sentence, Previous Sentence, if
supported by the plugin).

Audio Effects are also plugins now.

On my KDE-3.2.1/QT-3.2.1 the error doesn't appear, so I could need your help to fix this.
Would you do me a favour and replace line 46 (starts with "std::string") in audioplayer.cpp by the following line (all in one line) and see what happens:
std::string fxname = "Arts::"+std::string( (*fx_it).ascii() );

Thanks for your support.

 Languages

Txt2Pho is german only, right? Will KSayIt work with any of the other TTS systems listed here: http://tcts.fpms.ac.be/synthesis/mbrola/mbrtts.html

Specifically, can i get KSayIt to speak English?

For the future I plan to implement KSayIt as a client for the coming KDE TTS system (ktts). Based on ktts KSayIt will support languages other than german.

I suggest you add an audio sample of some text being read alound by KSayIt to the available downloads.

Make that a few samples, the same text read aloud by different synthesizers.

KSayIt is just a frontend for a synthesizer that is already installed on your system. e.g. if you use Mbrola than it sounds as Mbrola sounds, if you use Festival (supported by the commandline) than it sounds as you have configured it.

 Too lazy

Many things to install, I'm too lazy to try this :P
Any Slackware Packages? ^^

Oh, and would it be possible to do a Amsn plugin, lite SayIt! for MacOS? That would be awsome ^^

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
