I recently purchased the Cepstral 6 text-to-speech engine (swift), and am now wondering if I should have bought something else. I would like to use Cepstral text to speech like some people use the Festival() or Flite() applications. For example, when I do a “core show application flite” at the CLI, flite is available to me:
localhost*CLI> core show application flite
-= Info about application ‘Flite’ =-
Say text to the user, using Flite TTS engine
Flite(text[,intkeys]): This will invoke the Flite TTS engine, send a text string, get back the resulting waveform and play it to the user, allowing any given interrupt keys to immediately terminate and return the value, or ‘any’ to allow any number back.
I would like to do the same thing with Cepstral, and am trying to use app_swift available from:
However, I am not able to get app_swift to compile. I am running Asterisk 11.6.0 and CentOS 6.4 64-bit.
I am wondering if anyone else out there has been able to get app_swift working with Asterisk 11 and could share any tricks they used to get it installed?
