Your posting reads very funny, does your computer stutter?
I was not able to tell the first URL you gave, too garbled. I found the
second with googles' help.
My general concern about phonemes is that it would require:
- a kind of dictionary, ruleset, whatever (could maybe swapped out, like the
- a bunch of code to work with that
- nicely recorded phonemes that fit very well together
- blending from one phoneme to the next, our hardware can do only hard cuts
(probably some people now want to record all the combinations instead)
- tone variations within a sentence, following grammar, to avoid robot-talk,
can maybe done by pitching
Even if the code was made back in time for 64kB machines, this is still a
lot of extra for our box.
Don't get me wrong, it would be great to have synthesis, please feel still
encouraged. It's just more than I want to do in the first shot.
