Generating Speech With AIR and Java

Posted by Sravan | June 11, 2009 .

Rich Tretola recently posted a nice AIR/Java example for voice applications. The inspiration came from the ColdFusion Jedi Raymond Camden who posted an example of generating speech with ColdFusion and Java.

Both examples essentially use an underlying TTS (text-to-speech) system. They use Java-based FreeTTS here but you could use any of the TTS systems freely available. There seem to be some issues with using FreeTTS on Linux-flavored OSs.

Your AIR app should create an instance of the FreeTTS object that takes text as input. It does all the work needed, the howabouts of which can be ignored, and produces the speech.

I can’t wait to see the next AIR app which uses speech synthesis.
