Easy Voice Script under Linux

Post by zector » Sat Mar 09, 2013 5:38 pm

After playing some, I made a script with festival under linux.

Here is the script:

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
#

# install festival
# install this nice voice:
#sudo apt-get install festlex-cmu
#cd /usr/share/festival/voices/english/
#sudo wget -c http://www.speech.cs.cmu.edu/cmu_arctic/packed/cmu_us_clb_arctic-0.95-release.tar.bz2
#sudo tar jxf cmu_us_clb_arctic-0.95-release.tar.bz2 
#sudo ln -s cmu_us_clb_arctic cmu_us_clb_arctic_clunits
#sudo cp /etc/festival.scm /etc/festival.scm.backup
#sudo echo "(set! voice_default 'voice_cmu_us_clb_arctic_clunits)" >> /etc/festival.scm
#echo "This is a test." | festival --tts
#rm /usr/share/festival/voices/english/cmu_us_clb_arctic-0.95-release.tar.bz2
# need this for CMU files apt install festlex-cmu

# string used to set voice -eval (voice_XXXXXXXX)
# string used to set volume -scale (1-100)
VOICEVOLUME="4"

VOICESTRING="-eval (voice_"$VOICE") -scale "$VOICEVOLUME

INPUTFILE="phrases.txt"
NEWFOLDER=`date +%F-%H:%M`-$VOICE

#output some info
echo "Creating voices from " $INPUTFILE ", and saving it into a new folder ./" $NEWFOLDER ". Voice list copied to " $NEWFOLDER"/VoiceList.txt"
mkdir $NEWFOLDER
# Put a copy of the phrase file into folder
cp $INPUTFILE $NEWFOLDER/VoiceList.txt
 
# Do some work!
while IFS=$'\t' read -r -a myArray
do
	if [[ ${myArray[0]} && ${myArray[1]} ]]; then
		echo "Creating file - " $NEWFOLDER"/"${myArray[0]}".wav With Text: " ${myArray[1]}
		echo ${myArray[1]} | text2wave $VOICESTRING >$NEWFOLDER"/"${myArray[0]}.wav
	else
		echo "Missing Data for line: " ${myArray[0]}
	fi
done < $INPUTFILE
And here is the phrases.txt, customize away:

Works great on my megasound9x. Voice is ok, ive played with some different ones and like this one best. But quick and easy way to make your own voices.

Happy crashing!

Ok, for the common mortal that just started with linux (ubuntu studio) ;) , how do we use this? What do we have to do with that info?

Thanks

Cool. So if i understand this correctly. It takes a text file and creates audio samples in a format utilized by our 9x firmware. Can you get it to say ' there goes $20 in spare parts' and ' how many times you gonna drive that heli straight into the ground' :)

Yes it will make a sound file named by the first number, then *TAB* the text to sound and save it. There is a bunch of free and easy to install voices.

Under Ubuntu Very simple, make sure you have your updates first:

Code: Select all

sudo apt install festival festlex-cmu festvox-en1 festvox-us1 festvox-us2 festvox-us3 festvox-kallpc16k festvox-kdlpc16k festvox-rablpc16k 
This will give you a bunch of usable voices. To add some more (I like CLB best) do this (but not needed, try some of the above voices first)

Code: Select all

cd /usr/share/festival/voices/english/
sudo wget -c http://www.speech.cs.cmu.edu/cmu_arctic/packed/cmu_us_clb_arctic-0.95-release.tar.bz2
sudo tar jxf cmu_us_clb_arctic-0.95-release.tar.bz2 
sudo ln -s cmu_us_clb_arctic cmu_us_clb_arctic_clunits
Then you can use the clb voice, I like it best so far. The info how to do this is in the script, with a couple links. To use the script, save the code to a file, then from prompt run "chmod +x **whateveryousavedthescriptto**" Save the other code to a file called phrases.txt in the same folder. Welcome to Linux, all i run now is Linux Mint (Ubuntu based).

You can add whatever lines to the txt file, makes it easy to make a new set, or try voices. I have already added RTH enabled, and a few others quickly and easily. There is a volume setting in there too.

You may need to play with the spelling of some words to make it sound right. running festival from the prompt can test it.

rperkins - it will say whatever you like. i.e. line 0028 :shock:
jhsa - maybe i should of trimmed the file some... :D

I don't know if it was my text editor, or the way the files copied from the forum. But it didn't work for me. I was able to fix it, and here are the files I can now use. There are 3 files. First is installPackages.sh. Run this file to install all of the dependencies, and the extra voices. Next is the phrases.txt file, this is a listing of what the sound files will be. And finally the mkSounds.sh, this is the script that creates the sound files.

I'm afraid to get started down this path. I see hours of time playing around, modding my 9x, installing all the sounds. :)

When I insert this in terminal, it doesn't work.. It says "sudo: apt: command not found"

he meant to say apt-get where he just said apt. I did not actually run this command so there may be other errors. I did look at gohsthb's script, he has it correctly in his, you may want to try out his work.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install festival festlex-cmu festvox-en1 festvox-us1 festvox-us2 festvox-us3 festvox-kallpc16k festvox-kdlpc16k festvox-rablpc16k

Its apt-get
But I don't want to encourage running commands as root (that is what sudo does) if you don't know what they do.

There I'd so much bad advice being given by beginners on the net, especially in the Ubuntu scene, that I would always advise to be sceptical first.
Above commands are certainly not written up in a way that they can just be hacked in a terminal. It's good Unix prosa though.

Forgot to mention, my system is running xubuntu 12.04. The script should work on any system with apt-get.
Finding the apt-get problem was easy. I figured that was just a typing error. The main problem I had was no tabs in the text file. So I changed it to look for spaces. And I prefer posting things that work when I say they will. I test what I post so it is not likely to cause the end user problems.

Use a terminal window for one. You might have to run "chmod u+x *.sh" to make the scripts executable. At least in the terminal you will get the error messages.

Sorry, i run mint, it uses apt, which is a smart script that includes apt-get and a few others in one. as for the tabs, sorry it didnt paste in well.

running sudo apt-get is safe as long as you are installing an app from the repository, which is the ubuntu software database. when you get in trouble is when someone gives you a link to a .deb, or other software package, tell you to download it then install from the prompt. Be careful of that, just like downloading a windows program from some sight. apt-get gets the software from the ubuntu servers, so its safe. otherwise you should never really have the need to run sudu. Mint's apt script does this work for you, so i never run sudo at all. Mint is really worth a look, its ubuntu based and comes out of the box with some nice stuff setup, and easier to use from day 1. It is the most popular distro according to distrowatch.com

Well, guess what.. ;) I managed to make it work.. Being a windows user for many years, I just opened a terminal on the folder where the install.sh file is, then dragged it into the terminal window and voilá. all installed.. then double clicked on the MKSounds.sh file and it created another folder with the wav files inside.. The problem is, many files are cut. for example the files supposed to say point one, point two, point 3, ect, only say point. the numbers are missing.. the file 10 seconds for example only plays 10..
Somehow is cropping the files to early

The script was only reading the first word of the message and sending that to festival. Fixed in this version. I should note there are 3 spaces between the number and what you want said. Exactly 3, no more no less, or it will skip that line.

yep. now it works.. can we select other voices?
or even better, can we adapt this to use other online TTS sites?
The quality is not so great and there are others with much more quality.. actually my latest sound pack was made using an online TTS site..

To change the voice you need to change this line in mkSounds.sh

Code: Select all

VOICE="us1_mbrola"
Looking above that line will give you hints about what to set it too. :lol:

the script breaks the fields up by TAB not spaces. The text part can have as many spaces as you like. Perhaps when pasting in the phrases, auto replace replaced all the spaces with tabs.

You can see how it loads the array, breaking it up by tabs, or '\t' to load each field in the while statement. Linux has some crazy power when doing stuff in bash (prompt).
