This has now been done. But while working on it I wondered about the
How important are these kind of voices for the accessibility community?
If deemed crucial, I am willing to spend time on improving the
situation. Like standardizing descriptions and work flow to allow more
voices (especially languages I guess) to enter.
Are the 8kHz voices still needed (looks like they may have been needed
in the past due to hardware requirements, but I expect all hardware
nowadays could run the 16kHz voices without any issue?
Upstream there a lot more voices (15 additional ones to the ones we
ship) which I expect to be of higher quality, should we package this and
improve our defaults?
Does anybody have an idea how to find additional languages (except for
just duck-duck-go-ing (the name festival doesn't help to target what I
am looking for).
Should this all be under the TTS umbrella?
