When I discovered the open source application MaryTTS, I was excited until I discovered that it did not have an intuitive or easy to use front end. When I called for assistance to write this gui, we had a number of java programmers answer the call. This release is another indication of how well this is going. Not fast mind you. We all have jobs and/or families so time to develop an application can take a while. TypeTalk (formally "speechless") is the latest developer-release. Give it a try and let us know what you think. I think it's going in the right direction, as it works wonderfully well for me.
My personal thanks and gratitude to +Rijk Oosterhoff for his tireless efforts in bringing this project to the fore. We are also looking for people to package this great FOSS project.
.deb and .rpm folks are welcome to take this project on, and for what it's worth, you will have my deepest thanks. Also a significant mention on FOSS Force and Blog of helios.
I am a geek , a linux geek , photography geek , hell, a generic geek I love technology and every thing to do with it
Adding me to your circles
My Open source life started with Coral Linux ,I now use almost entirely Open Source / Free software. I advocate Open Source / Free Software when ever possible.
My first experience was Coral Linux in late 1997 because I read about it in a magazine and wanted to try it so I bought a Linux book with a CD-ROM with it, I’ve never been a fan of Windows.
It was a painful experience almost no hardware worked and i was limited to VGA, but it got me interested in free software. I gave up as I had no help with getting things working and lacking a printer or a working Internet connection, having to remember all the details between reboots were impractical.
I didn’t touch Linux again until 2002 when I moved and my next door neighbour was a Gentoo Linux developer and he got me back into Linux and I used Gentoo linux from 2002 till 2008 when I finally gave up on them, wanting a system that just works over what Gentoo offered
Then I used Ubuntu and i’m loving the “it just works” style of it but then unity happened and I dislike unity so I had to find a new Home in the Linux world So I moved to Debian Linux and loving it, even my server is Debian
I mostly Listen to "Free" music from jamendo , Soma.fm covers and Last.fm, I am also learning to play the guitar
I like to paint in oil and draw with charcoal and pastels but don't feel my work is good enough for display only for personal pleasure.
I also love Photography and my photo's can be found all over the place but mostly on Flickr but due to a epic data loss on my desktop machine I've lost 100% of my photo's while I was uploading them so most never made it and I have no back up's but I have learnt from this.. back up, back up, back up
