<p>This project is part of the work at <a href="http://www.speech.cs.cmu.edu/">Carnegie Mellon University's speech group</a> aimed at advancing the state of Speech Synthesis.</p> <p> </p> <ul> <li><strong>November 2010</strong>: <a href="http://festvox.org/packed/festival/2.1/">Festival 2.1 released</a> A surprising official new version of Festival is released. Updating support for various machines and merging the support for HTS, Clustergen, Multisyn and Clunit voices.</li> <li><strong>Jan 21st 2007</strong>: <a href="http://festvox.org/bsv/">Festvox-2.1 Release</a> Festvox-2.1 has been released. New with this release is Clustergen Statistical Parametric Synthesis support, EHMM acoustic labeler (no longer dependent on Sphinx) Thanks to Kishore, Voice Conversion support (thanks to Tomoki Toda), and cygwin support. See <a href="http://festvox.org/bsv/ANNOUNCE-2.1">ANNOUNCE-2.1</a> for more details.</li> </ul> <p>The Festvox project aims to make the building of new synthetic voices more systemic and better documented, making it possible for anyone to build a new voice. Specifically we offer:</p> <ul> <li><a href="http://festvox.org/festvox/festvox_toc.html">Documentation</a>, including scripts explaining the background and specifics for building new voices for speech synthesis in new and supported languages.</li> <li>Specific scripts to build new voices in supported languages, such as US and UK English.</li> <li>Aids to building synthetic voices for <a href="http://festvox.org/ldom/index.html">limited domains</a></li> <li><a href="http://festvox.org/dbs/index.html">Example speech databases</a> to help building new voices.</li> <li>Links, demos and a repository for new voices</li> </ul> <p>The documentation, tools and dependent software are all free without restriction (commercial or otherwise). Licencing of voices built by these techniques are the responsibility of the builders.</p> <p>This work is firmly grounded within Edinburgh University's <a href="http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/projects/festival/"> Festival Speech Synthesis System</a> and Carnegie Mellon University's <a href="http://cmuflite.org"> small footprint Flite synthesis engine</a></p> <p>This work has been supported be various groups including, Carnegie Mellon University, the US National Science Foundation (NSF), and US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).</p>
