Best text to Speech (TTS) on Linux. Choosing which one.

I have been researching for a while the best solution to use as TTS (text to Speech) software for a project that could run on Linux using command line.

There are quite few software available, paid and free, I personally focused on the free and open source because I tested the paid one and, in my opinion, they do not really offer a “better” solution.

Following the list of TTS Software that I found:

  • eSpeak – To install on Ubuntu from the command line “sudo apt-get install espeak”
  • Festvox – To install on Ubuntu from the command line “sudo apt-get install festvox”
  • Mbrola  – To install on Ubuntu from the command line “sudo apt-get install mbrola”

Now I am going to try the 3 packages and make my own considerations. To help you make yours I will (Eventually 🙂 )upload the MP3 Output on this post.

Keep tuned!
