    Re: HOWTO: Make festival TTS use better voices (MBROLA / CMU / HTS)

    I entered the first command, and it displayed:

    Now, the Festival package is completely removed from my Ubuntu right?

    After I entered:

     lsb_release -drc
    It showed this

    I checked my File System after I used the 'remove' command above.

    There is a 'festival' folder in my /usr/share/
    The 'festival' folder (/usr/share/festival) contains a 'voices' folder and 'hts.scm' file.
    The 'voices' folder has 2 other folder: 'english' which contains the MBROLA voices and 'us' which contains the HTS voices.

    Yes, those were manually installed. You can remove them with:

    Code:
    sudo rm -rf /usr/share/festival
    Does the HOWTO work correctly for you now?

    Re: HOWTO: Make festival TTS use better voices (MBROLA / CMU / HTS)

    Should I remove these folder before I start the HOWTO again?

    It shouldn't matter -- but it doesn't hurt to remove them just in case.

    Re: HOWTO: Make festival TTS use better voices (MBROLA / CMU / HTS)

    I removed the festival folder, and started with the HOWTO. However
    when I entered this command
    Code:
    sudo apt-get intall festvox-don festvox-rablpc16k festvox-kallpc16k festvox-kdlpc16k
    It gave me this error
    Code:
    E: Invalid operation intall
    When I tried the HOWTO yesterday, it worked when I entered that command. I don't know what wrong now.

    Nevermind, I found the error now. Because I copy your command and paste to Terminal. And the command line has a mispell of the word 'install'.

    Thanks MonkeeSage

    Doh! Typo! That should of course be:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install festvox-don festvox-rablpc16k festvox-kallpc16k festvox-kdlpc16k

    No problem. Sorry about the misspelling. I've fixed now.

    Re: HOWTO: Make festival TTS use better voices (MBROLA / CMU / HTS)

    I installed the standard Festvox diphone voices.

    When I tested the voices, I can only hear the noise. Do I need to install any additional sound software?

    This is my testing result:
