so i've been working on a custom text-to-speech (TTS) engine. just playing around to get a better idea of how TTS actually works. there are some open source ones out there, but they are more complex than i wanted. i.e. they do alot more processing to try and sound like human voices; whereas i just want something dead simple that might be recognizable as speech, regardless if it sounds like 'speak and spell'. anyways, i 'think' i just got past the hardest part?
... i forget if my blog engine can handle this? if so, there will be a wav file link below that has my computer speaking the letter 'a'
