I want a tool / library / package in C/C++/Python for basically Text to Speech - Speech to Text in Linux.I've tried pyttsx in python , but it runs only in windows as expected, in Linux (openSUSE 11.2 , the script just hangs up )festival in C. - in Ubuntu - Could not configured it successfully.
After 5+ years of using Ubuntu, I am switching to it as my desktop. On my old FreeBSD desktop i was running KDE3; now I am runnung 10.04.1 and find that even tho things are more friendly with KDE4, one of the tools I use most,kttsmgr, no longer works like it did on my previous desktop.
How can I configure kttsmgr to use festival (right now it says "espeak") and to present the dialogue that prints the strings beneath what is being read? --Note that I downloaded flite and eflite for testing purposes. Both fail. not a peep. I do have audio with songs and can listen to streams, but nothing from ktts*
I've got a bunch of hand-written notes which I would like to put into Kabikaboo (great app by the way) - but it is a real pain reading stuff then typing it up. I'd like a speech-to-text app, so I can just read my notes out loud and the computer will turn them into text files.Looking through Synaptic, all I can find is Julius; and that does not seem to be an easy-to-use app at all. So many parameters to set, an impenetratable (to me) manpage; and although I am a CLI user quite often, some kind of GUI would be nice.
I want to develop a system that converts speech to text in C sharp in Windows 7 platform.I haven't enough idea about this one.From google that,there will be grammerbuliding.Moreover i think,there will be a problem of spelling words correctly. from where i will start or which steps i should follow to develop the system??
I am trying to use some text to speech tool named pyttsx in ubuntu Linux 9.
but I get the following message, does anybody know, which package should I use, to solve this package ?
Code: aarsh@aarsh-desktop:~/program_files/pyttsx-1.0$ sudo python setup.pyTraceback (most recent call last): File "setup.py", line 18, in <module> from ez_setup import use_setuptools ImportError: No module named ez_setup aarsh@aarsh-desktop:~/program_files/pyttsx-1.0$
I am using Okular as a chm reader (I know how to use extract_chmlib and htmldoc.. but with those two I can only make HTML-only documents and not image attachments..)and it just happens so I would like my machine to read the text... i have both festival and espeak installed (as well some gnome-based plug-ins)... But I just can't get Okular to speak.
I am looking for some source package which will convert html fileto text file without using perl.I mainly need to do this on an ARM platform, so if I get sources I can cross compile it. I need the source package in C
I'm looking into getting an ok microphone for guitar, song and speech, to use with Ubuntu. It's for hobby use, so I don't need the best microphone, just something that is good and will work in Ubuntu. Any recommendations? Should I get an USB one, or just a normal one and use my built in sound card?
My wife is taking an online language course that requires Windows in order to record and playback speech (for pronunciation training). I decided the easiest thing to do would be to clone a VM I use on my machine for tasks that can only be accomplished in a Windows environment. I did so, and successfully installed the speech recognition utility on the Windows guest VM. Unfortunately, although the microphone works just fine--I can hear my voice in the headphones--no sound is recorded by the speech recognition utility. Just to be clear, the microphone is fully functional under GNU/Linux. My wife has been using Skype without any issues at all. That is, Skype used to work. Somewhere during the course of trying to resolve the voice recording problem I managed to break Skype. I have no idea how.
It's a long story, but I'll try to be as brief as possible. When I could not get the VM solution to work properly, I thought maybe the problem was with the VM, so I checked the original copy on my own machine. No problem there. Windows sees and hears the microphone just fine (using the testing utility under sound configuration). So how is it possible that the microphone doesn't work in the cloned VM image? Before you stop me, allow me to note that both machines have identical motherboards, and both are configured to use the onboard sound. Sound works on the Linux host and the Windows guest VM. Both sound and microphone work in the original VM image on my machine, but only sound works in the cloned VM on my wife's machine.
If you've followed me down the rabbit hole this far, please continue with me a bit further as things get stranger and stranger. After triple checking all the setting in KMix (I'm running Squeeze/KDE on both machines) to be sure they were identical, I noted that I was unable to view/add/enable the "channel" option on my wife's machine. Why, I have no idea. As I said, the machines are identical as can be both regarding hardware and software. Out of desperation, I decided to set up an account for my wife on my machine. I created her account, made sure she had the necessary audio permissions, then cloned my VM to her account. Same problem.
I would love for someone to point out what I'm missing here. Same hardware, identical VM (clone), same permissions, same sound configurations in KMix and under the Windows guest VM. How is it possible for the microphone to work for me, but not for my wife? Is there some mystery configuration file somewhere that has magically been altered for her account alone? The worst part about this entire process is that I've broken my wife's Skype, which is a big deal seeing as we live in a tiny country in the heart of Africa and cell phone communications are very expensive.
I've downloaded a few suggested converters, but they don't seem t ohave the right combination..I have some .avi's (from my camera) and want to put them on my website (using Joomla AllVideo component) so they have to be converted to .flv or maybe .mov.
I am trying to find a way to convert MS Mpeg4 files to a format that is playable on Totem or any of the media players for Ubuntu. I have tried many converters, even trying ones in Windows (I really didn't want to but thought I would give it a shot)
I have installed all the limited FFMPEG and x2.64 restricted and limited libraries. I have all the multiverse and universe repositories. I have tried WINFF, Avidemux, DeVeDe but to no avail and now I am tearing my hair out. Totem cannot find any plugins suitable.
I have a set of archival files from a previous machine that ran windows and one of Microsoft's proprietary photo packages. I have a set of files with the extension .mix and can find no program to convert them. I have tried the ABC program but it fails with floating point exceptions.
I have a training CD for my job,its an interactive disk with audio clips etc. I want to try extract the audio which is in the .AUD format. I have tried SoundConverter but it does not recognize the extension.Firstly am I correct in saying the audio is the .AUD extension,there is another file in the same folder with .DAT extension.
What are some good VGA to HDMI converters that work well with linux? Any suggestions? I don't know the resolution I'm working with just yet, but it appears to be a 42" hd lcd tv/monitor. I think there's a VGA port on the back, but I'd rather route the signal through HDMI for better resolution.
I am looking for some conversion software to convert mp3 files to a format that will play on a standard CD player .cda so that I can listen to audio files whilst in my car. Does anyone know of such a converter.
I was looking for a converter to use on common avi files and maybe some others and came across this thread. I followed it all the way to where it asks me to install ConvertIt by adding the repos and then running Synaptic. I found convertit and marked for install and clicked apply and got this error:
Code: convertit: Depends: gambas2-runtime (<2.1) but 2.13.1-1ubuntu1 is to be installed Depends: gambas2-gb-qt (<2.1) but 2.13.1-1ubuntu1 is to be installed
So i check synaptic for that and i had them installed already from the guide. So i marked them all for reinstall since i installed them in the terminal the first time. Reinstalled and i still get the same error.
Any idea whats wrong? Or is there a better movie converter thats easier? I just want to re encode the files so the will play on my 360.
