I made a TTS with my Voice
h
Vandesm14

Have you ever looked at a TTS? Sure you have! You've probably heard your phone or smart speaker talk to you. Or maybe you've heard memes or videos with a robotic-sounding voice. That's a TTS!

What is a TTS? TTS stands for Text To Speech. This system allows computers to speak. Most TTS's are really complex and are AI-based, creating clear and realistic voices. The issue with AI-based ones is that they take time to perfect. Most people generally use built-in TTS's which aren't great, but they get the job done.

Oh, what about mine? Well, I basically recorded myself saying every single phonetic sound for the English language and compiled that into multiple audio files. The program basically finds the phonetic pronounciation for a word, compiles all the phonetics to an audio timeline, then plays the audio.

You should make it so we can't change the size of the textarea, using resize: none; CSS on the textareas.

I was just messing around and got something that I am proud of lol (copy and paste the following text if u want) "repl.it repl.it repl.it pmmmkkkkkkrepl.it repl.it repl.it hhhhh rafpm.it"

this may seem weird but it actually sounds good
"di ck di ck di ck ckckckckckckck di ck di ck di ck"

zhaq6129

repl.it sounds like "aypl eet"

zhaq6129

yay hi sounds like "yuh"

I love how it sounds like a bot TTS thing but you can realize its an actual voice lol.

SeamusDonahue

@rjlevy Amazing!

RolandJLevy

@Vandesm14, your app is amazing - keep up the great work! :)

[deleted]

you have a /dʒ/ sound file but you use /ʤ/ in the text file so all the "j"s someone inputs are silent. you might want to fix that :)

Vandesm14

@merrybot Thanks a bunch! It's fixed now!

charmelion416

cool! one problem: when I put "j" it turns out to be a silent "j". i know that that is how some words are but when i put in "junior" it pronounces it as hunior

ch1ck3n

@charmelion416 Same with Ch

Vandesm14

@ch1cken I fixed the "j" issue. Not sure about ch though. I don't think I recorded that. I'll get on it in a bit.

Baconman321

just spam hahahahaha. XD sounds like someone's running an air compressor LOL!!
Edit: hehehehe sounds even weirder. Also, if you don't stop the first one, starting it a second time will overlap. I had a bunch of HAHAHAHA's and HEHEHEHEH's running, and it sounded like a car repair shop XD Also, put 'aaa' in, sounds like the program is trying to confuse itself.

Bookie0

Try this:
