Flite integration Services
Flite is a small run-time speech synthesis engine developed at CMU. Flite was developed from Festival Speech Synthesis System, the initial speech synthesizer. It is also known as Festival-Lite: a lighter version of Festival without any of its pitfalls. Flite was primarily designed for large servers / small embedded machines. Festival was written in C++, but later discovered that C++ is not portable and had problem with the size and efficiency of the code produced. Taking that into consideration, Flite was developed in C to outweigh the pitfalls Festival had. Festival was designed as a R&D process whereas Flite was designed as run-time speech synthesizer that can be integrated to any application. The input data files for Festival were loaded in external memory and hence was slow and memory expensive. Since Flite is targeted for small embedded machines, core language data is stored in ROM which can be loaded to memory without any explicit loading. Flite uses diphone synthesis technique – sound to sound transition in a language.
FliteEngine, which is available for both iOS and Android, is developed based on Flite. Flite-TTS-Engine-iOS is an Objective-C library containing wrapper for Flite open source speech synthesizer and has no additional features than Flite. Flite-TTS-Engine-iOS just exposes Objective-C class methods for the Flite functionality and also combines iOS AVFoundation Framework. Flite-TTS-Engine-Android is Flite Engine’s android version that combines Flite functionality with Android’s Audio/Video framework.
