  • read-aloud

    An awesome browser extension that reads aloud webpage content with one click

    I don't have a wide knowledge of FOSS speech synthesizers, but one related FOSS application I can recommend is Read Aloud. It is a browser extension for Chrome/Firefox that can use both FOSS synthesizers and external proprietary ones. You can expand voices by installing more local voices. You can for free use their "Basic" voices or pay a small fee for some of their Premium voices (if you pay for premium, as I did for 1 USD, you will get free additional characters every month. I am currently sitting with more characters than I started with). You can alternatively give API keys for Google Cloud, AWS, or IBM. If you want more quality voices.

    Take a look at Coqui. The available samples are pretty impressive.

  • common-voice

    Common Voice is part of Mozilla's initiative to help teach machines how real people speak.

    Wait: so is commonvoice by Mozilla ( https://commonvoice.mozilla.org/ ) useful in any way, still? I happen to contribute on their website/app from time to time but I'd like to know if I'm contributing to something dead or not πŸ˜…
