Dilmanc text-to-speech system was released
Text-to-Speech (TTS) system which has been developed within the Dilmanc project was released for online use at dilmanc.az webpage. Site enables to input text in Azerbaijani language and listen to synthesized speech. Also, it's possible to download generated sound file as mp3 - this enables to listen to this file later on the phone or player.
Note that Dilmanc TTS is the first such program for Azerbaijani language. Speech synthesis algorithm has been updated and is based on different approach.
According to project director dr. Abulfat Fatullayev, in future this program will be used as the part of phone-translator, which automatically translates telephone speech. TTS will also be adapted to mobile platforms.
