In honor of Pi day, Cepstral is pleased to announce that Cepstral's Text to Speech voices are now available for the Raspberry Pi! We are just as excited about the possibilities of this little computer as you are, and we're happy to finally be able to provide great sounding voices for the Pi. We set up a Raspberry Pi Model B (rev 2) in our testing lab to build Cepstral for the ARM architecture. To our pleasant surprise, everything went relatively smoothly thanks to some tenacity with build configuration options.
After compiling Cepstral's ultra-fast synthesis engine, we dropped in our Callie voice and Hello World!
For now, you'll need to call us to purchase and download the software. But we would very much like to hear about the projects you do using Cepstral TTS, so we've set up a thread in our forums dedicated to using Cepstral on the Raspberry Pi.
Whether you are an educator, tinkerer, or deploying Pi commercially, we hope you enjoy Callie bringing your Raspberry Pi applications to life.
