Re: Word lists in English and German

Dear Christian,

check out whether the festival speech synthesis system from CSTR in Edinburgh (http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/projects/festival/) is appropriate for you.

Dear List,

Some weeks ago I asked for (recorded) word lists in English and German. It seems there is no such database. Holger Mitterer suggested the use of a speech synthesizer (Thanks, Holger). This might be a good alternative. Do you have suggestions for speech synthesizers? Our requirements would be:
* German and (US-)English voices
* Ease of use:
- feed in words (not phonetical transcriptions)
- easy to install
* Good quality of output

Best regards,
