Python interface for SVOX Pico TTS pico2wave

Project description

Some simple wrappers around SVOX Pico TTS intended to make using this TTS for wave file generation as convenient as possible.

Target audience are developers who would like to use SVOX Pico TTS as-is for speech synthesis in their Python application on GNU/Linux operating systems.

Constructive comments, patches and pull-requests are very welcome.


First, imports:

import wave import StringIO from picotts import PicoTTS

english (default) synthesis:

picotts = PicoTTS() wavs = picotts.synth_wav(‘Hello World!’) wav = print wav.getnchannels(), wav.getframerate(), wav.getnframes()


1 16000 22720

try a different language:

picotts.voice = ‘de-DE’ wavs = picotts.synth_wav(‘Hallo Welt!’) wav = print wav.getnchannels(), wav.getframerate(), wav.getnframes()


1 16000 22464

### List Available Voices

l = picotts.voices


[‘de-DE’, ‘en-GB’, ‘en-US’, ‘es-ES’, ‘fr-FR’, ‘it-IT’]


  • Python 2.7

  • pico2wave binary installed and in PATH


My own code is LGPLv3 licensed unless otherwise noted in the script’s copyright headers.
