Here we represent a Belarusian and Russian text-to-speech synthesizer, which has been written in the programming language PHP. It receives a text in Belarusian or Russian at the input and generates an audio file in the format * WAV.
The resulting file is immediately available for listening. A link to it can be used any number of times. One can send it to a friend, post on a social network, use for voicing slides of a presentation.
Intermediate stages of the PHP-synthesizer work can be viewed as the stages of text, prosodic, phonetic and allophonic processing. Each stage can be used for further development of other scientific tools: spell checkers, splitters of texts into well-readable word sequences, generators of word orthoepic structure and etc.
Since the speech synthesizer has been developed in PHP, it can be embedded into PHP-websites according to the agreement.
The developers of this programm are:
The Speech Synthesis and Recognition Laboratory (SSRL);
United Institute of the Informatics Problems of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus, Minsk, BELARUS;
Belarusian State University of Informatics and Radioelectronics;
The main scientific direction the of SSRL is the theory and applications of man-machine speech communication.
