Have you ever wondered how to make your application talk? Well, in this tutorial we take a look at a JavaFX application built to sample some voices. The application uses freely available tools such as FreeTTS and MBROLA to add speech into an application.
This is the first in a small series of videos showing how to build the Speech Tester application.
The video shows the completed application in action. It demonstrates how the sound produced by the voices changes as various settings for the voices are adjusted.
Download the Speech Tester application. The zip file contains a windows executable file. When run, the exe will unpack a JVM, jars and the application byte code and then run the application. If you have a virus scanner it may scan the files as it unpacks to ensure there is no malicious code.
