I would like to participate in GSOC. I am interested in creating couple
I would like todo the online application for generating voice files. I
contacted the concrete mentor who was mentioned by these online
he suggested to me to do two online services since they are easier then the
other projects and to contact the whole community.
How I understand it? So there would be a form where you would pick a
rate, pitch and the tts system (espeak or festival) and it would
create a link
after submiting the form where you can download the generated voice
Maybe also more free tts systems will be possible to use than just
festival. I can look for other possible ones or just if any of you know
then let me know...
I would like to know your suggestions what all I should check. The person
I have contacted before told me to check out the voice.pl, but if you
can seeany problems I can encounter in this project or what I should be
of, then please let me know.
As a second online service I'd like to do the creation of forms for managing
the fmpresets ofusers. My imagination of this idea is, that there will be
The first one where you would enter a country, city, maybe GPS possition
and the name of the radio
station and its frequency. The GPS possition will be obtional if entering
a new radio station, but if some one already entered the GPS possition
picked city before and there will be a radio station in the database
GPS possition so then it would be matched with the GPS possition by
the same city.
So for instance the person can pick a country, city and generate all
radio stations within certain distance from the picked spot defined by GPS
The second form where you can select certain country, city or distance in
kilometres from certain GPS possition and then all available names of radio
stations with their frequencies will be shown so the user can copy and
to his/her file.
The choice of creating a file will be possible for downloading as well.
At the web-site is also mentioned an option like generating fmpresets
from the global frequency database. Is there a concrete web-site with
the database which is suggested or required to use?
Any ideas or suggestions for the two mentioned online services are welcomed.
