Epos 2.4.85 A Open Text-To-Speech Synthesis Platform...

Our primary design goal is to allow the user the ultimate control over the TTS processing. We avoid hard-wired constants; we use configuration options instead, with sensible default values. Most of the language-dependent processing is driven by a rules file, a text file using an intuitive and well-documented syntax. A rules file lists the rules to be applied on a written text structure representation to yield a corresponding spoken text structure representation (in fact it could be the other way round in principle, but somehow no one seems to need that). Some aspects of user-definable behavior don`t fit into the concept of a rules file, and are therefore settable with various options in conventional configuration files. Finally, many other external files can be referenced either by the rules file, or a configuration file, such as segment inventories or dictionaries. Most of these files have to be processed before any actual TTS processing has finished. That`s why Epos by Petr Horak is implemented as a background process, i. e. as a daemon under UNIX-like OSes and as a service on Windows NT and similar OSes. Epos 2.4.85 reserves a TCP/IP port for any communication with client applications using a custom, quite generic protocol for TTS data flow control, called TTSCP. A simple TTSCP client utility named say-Epos [epos2.4.85.exe] has been provided with Epos [epos2.4.85.exe], but there are many more specialized TTSCP clients in existence. Epos - 0.7MB currently supports several main speech generation algorithms. A linear prediction coding speech synthesizer written by Ellen Ví chová allows voice inventories as small as 25 kilobytes, whereas much larger but high-quality voices are available with a time domain synthesizer. Some additional synthesizers not under GPL are used with Epos 2.4.85; you can at least use the virtual speech synthesis to synthesize your own texts using some of them, if you are connected to the Internet. (Your text is partly processed and sent to our server. Then the generated speech signal is sent back to you. ) The last option is to use the semi-free MBROLA speech synthesizer, though the MBROLA synthesizer itself is not a part of Epos. We are constantly working on improving the synthesizers. Epos offers several interesting facilities for prosody generation. The rule-based (yet surprisingly acceptable) prosody based on the prosody research of Zdena Palková offers maximum reliability; the highly flexible neural network framework developed by Jakub Adá mek presents a powerful meld of neural network based and rule based tools; and these facilities can also serve as a signal source for a linear prediction based prosody model implemented by Petr Horá k. A lot of integration and assessment work in this area has also been done by Daniel Sobe.

What is new in official Epos 2.4.85 software version? - Unable to resolve 2.4.85 news. What is expected in the future? Newly-made Epos 2.5 be downloaded from current page, we also looking forward to unconfirmed 2.6 release build. You may download ep2-4-85.tgz directly, estimated download time by ISDN or CDMA [~128 kbit/s] is 0:00:40. Just write the reviews of the Epos. System requirements are unspecified. Program has been scanned and verified by the several antivirus and anti-spyware applications and Epos found to be clean. No guide or Epos tutorial available.
