PostPosted: Mon 22 Apr 2013, 19:20    Post_subject: festival looks good  

when trying to install flitegui_1.4-2-2 pet in slackopup it says "not possible to install it". I'm using yakitome.com in Spanish in the meantime, but it shouldn't be necessary to use the internet to have a text converted to good human voice (by the way, yakitome has a sweet female voice, difficult to improve).

Hi Geof -
thanks very much for your work here, unfortunately I can't get your flite gui's working in Pemasu's Upup 3.8.3.1. jrb's pet also loads up, but file conversion falls there also. I went to the ubuntu repo's and no luck there either with the official flite and flitelib installs. Do you want some sort of diagnostics to help solve the issue?
Cheers Smile

I downloaded Upup 3.8.3.1 to see what the problem was, installed jrb's pet, the old Gui don't work but replacing it with the gtkdialog4 version works fine, tested making wav and mp3 files, all appears to work ok.

you can change line 105 in the gtkdialog4 flitegui to read:
Code:
exec defaultaudioplayer $DIR/$NEW_MP3_NAME.$file &

that will get pMusic to play it.

Sub_title: Flite of the Discords
 

Thanks Geoffrey!
That's you, going beyond the call, again, cheers! I'll look into the gtkdialog4 version again (flitegui-2.3.tar.gz - it was the first one I tried, but didn't seem to produce the MP3 at all). I've had troubles with other Flite versions, including ones downloaded via PPM in various puplets - has been a frustrating day. I just want to flick various docx files- converted to straight text - into mp3's to playback on my olde PocketPC2003 when I'm out walking. The hope is I can study and get the blood circulating simultaneously - maybe even do my exam preparations 'on the run'...
Cheers Smile

EDIT:
Still no joy with v2.3. It loads fine, permits file selection and modification but when 'Record' is clicked, a SAVED [filename].mp3 message comes up instantly, only a strange [filename].mp3.txt file is generated. 'listen' button doesn't give the usual time speech - an ALSA problem perhaps? pMusic opens also, presumably to play the mp3 file that doesn't exist. Is there something wrong with my text file format? I've attached a copy of the file I'm trying to give voice to - perhaps someone might spot my problem?

EDIT2:
DOH Embarassed Missed the obvious - had to install the v 2.2 pet FIRST to get the voices etc, and then overlay the flitegui in /usr/bin with the v 2.3 tar.gz. It wasn't until I tried to reinstall in MacPup520 which I also have on this laptop, that this error occurred to me. The pharmacological and latin pronunciations actually very good with the Scottish male voice - but I'll have to read along with the text first before I go out walking with this as a revision aid Smile Discord over - thanks Smile
