Flite (festival-lite) is a small, fast run-time synthesis engine developed at Carnegie Mellon University.
This application installs the Flite Text-To-Speech Engine as a plug-in to the TTS framework on your phone. Other applications can use Flite for reading text out to you.
Support in the latest version (rolling out slowly) is included for English and Indian languages. Previous version only supports English voices. Voice files need to be downloaded from within the app.
If you upgrade the app's version and have problems, please go to the menu and "refresh voice list".
Voices can be installed and removed on the fly.
SD card READ/WRITE access is required to store downloaded voices.
Internet access is required to download new voices. No other data is sent to or recorded by our servers.
