What is it all about?
Flite (festival-lite) is a small, fast run-time synthesis engine developed at CMU and primarily designed for small embedded machines and/or large servers. Flite is designed as an alternative synthesis engine to Festival for voices built using the FestVox suite of voice building tools.
• Completely in C (no C++ or Scheme) for portability, size and speed • Reimplentation of the core parts of the Festival architecture (HRG) allowing close compabilility between voices built for each system. • Support for compiling FestVox voices into Flite voices. •Thread safe •Scalable voice size with all data const so it can be in ROM •Target architectures, ipaq (Linux/WinCE), Palm OS (treo) and smaller
