iPhone TTS - This is a port of CMU's Festival-Lite (aka flite) library to the iPhone/iOS platform. Homepage: http://bitbucket.org/sfoster/iphone-tts/ * HOW TO USE To use it in a new or existing project you can follow these steps: 0: Grab the latest version from http://bitbucket.org/sfoster/iphone-tts/ and open it in finder. 1: Drag the "flite-1.4-iphone" directory into your project's "Other Sources" area. This contains the sources to flite. 2: Drag the files FliteTTS.h and FliteTTS.m into your project's "Classes" area. 3: Add AVFoundation framework to your project if it does not already have it. 4: For the class where you want to call the library, if you want to define a class variable in the .h file, add this line to your .h file just above the @interface line: @class FliteTTS; 5: Create a pointer to the class, either in the .h or the .m depending on your needs: FliteTTS *fliteEngine; 6: In the .m file for the class add... #import "FliteTTS.h" 7: Initialize an FliteTTS object and point your pointer to it: fliteEngine = [[FliteTTS alloc] init]; 8: Start using it: [fliteEngine speakText:@"It works."]; // Make it talk [fliteEngine setPitch:100.0 variance:50.0 speed:1.0]; // Change the voice properties [fliteEngine setVoice:@"cmu_us_awb"]; // Switch to a different voice [fliteEngine stopTalking]; // stop talking * INCLUDED VOICES (you can remove the ones you don't need) cmu_us_kal cmu_us_kal16 cmu_us_awb cmu_us_rms cmu_us_slt * UPGRADING 1: Remove FliteTTS.h and FliteTTS.m from your project. When xcode asks if you want to move them to the trash, click yes. 2: Remove the "flite" folder from your Other Sources. 3: Copy the new versions in like described in steps 1 and 2 of the "HOW TO USE" section above. 4: If your code calls the setVoicePitch method, change that to setPitch. Let me know if you find any problems or want to contribute improvements.
