Linux TTS - Voices

Hi Guys

Had a play with HS Touch on a tablet last night, oh dear the TTS voice (Flite) sounds like a Dalek :-)

Does HS Voices work on Linux ? I had HS2 running with nice voices years ago but that was on Windows.

Is there a better TTS engine that anyone has got working ?

I'm loving HS on my Raspberry :-)

Yeah, the built in tts is quite horrible The Google tts engine was quite good, but they dropped support for real-time tts. I ended up taking my most used announcements and saved them and play as wav files instead of wasting cpu on regenerating then every time.

How did you end up recording your wav files ? I've had a quick look at google translate and cant seem to get the file...

Is there a URL thats still active ?

Thanks..pete

They've changed it - before, you could get to a playback screen where you right-click and save the mp3 file. Try clicking the 'share' icon and see if you can email it to yourself. Hopefully they havent locked that out

I converted Raspberry Pi2 deployment of HS3 to Pico using this guide. Not nearly as good as google's, but TREMENDOUSLY better that the default flite TTS. and this is fully offline (not cloud based).

I know its an old thread, but I got audio files from text here:
http://soundoftext.com/

and resampled to 44100 for airplayspeak here:
http://audio.online-convert.com/convert-to-wav

I figured the above is easiest for me given that all my audio is hardcoded and better linux tts voices seem terribly difficult to configure. And even if they aren't compiling from text each time is wasteful, and downloading them on the fly each time is plain stupid.
