Flite TTS Engine

Text-to-Speech Engine
Flite (festival-lite) is a small, fast runtime speech synthesis engine developed
at Carnegie Mellon University and primarily designed for small embedded devices.

This application wraps the Flite engine so that it can be installed as an
application on Android devices. This app gets installed as a TTS library,
thereby allowing other applications to make use of Flite for synthesis.

After installing this application, you will have to: 1. Enable Flite from "Text
to Speech Settings" on your phone 2. Install voice data 3. Go to "Language"
settings and select the voice that you want. By clicking on "Listen to a sample"
you can verify that Flite is working.


Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
