tortoise TTS is too slow and making good AI models takes time

websites like elevenlabs and fakeyou are too expensive for mass production of audio. You can get away with shorter stuff for free, however.

for TTS i still use festival scripts piped through libreoffice writer TTS plugin. I can get Linux or Windows to generate an 10 hour audiobook from a pile of text ripped out of a PDF in about a half an hour. Not bad. problem is, it sounds like shit. MP3 attached is an example of the kind of output you get from that.

I previously made this thread:


I often listen to audiobooks because I'm too busy with kids and work these days to really commit with a hard cover book. I can listen to an audiobook when changing a diaper or doing laundry or at work. I can't do that with a regular book. Problem is, not everything I want to listen to has a professionally made audiobook ready for it, and even if it does, I can't always find a good torrent. I still explore TTS pretty often because I think it has a lot of potential for helping people who don't have time to read a regular book. Also visually impaired and blind people.

Do any of you mess around with TTS? If so, what's your approach?



what comedian do you like /leftypol/ ?

The little bit of Clarke and Dawe that I've seen is quite funny. I take it these guys are the Aussie equivalent of Monty Python


Bong Hit Transplant


Whats everyones take on John Oliver? Recently he's had some good takes against landlords and all. His pieces are pretty good and I watch em sometimes


His writers room is aging millennials from college humor who make “like x if it y with x” jokes forced into every other line of what equates to a capstone 10 page paper riddled with neoliberal sensibilities with an ideological underpinning that harps only on impossible soft changes and “just vote”. It’s sometimes interesting as far as content if it’s a topic I know little about, but it’s the kind of smug Reddit tier “did you know that coffee beans came from little goofy goats that ate the beans and the shepherd said ‘golly Ms molly the Goat, you shake that rump you bad bitch!’ And then all of societal progress happened.”

Are there any kinds of online communities that are exclusive to amateurs and dilettantes in a certain topic anymore? My patience is pretty thin for people that expect others to be their DDG or that pontificate on something that they clearly don't understand.


Why did you ask this on /hobby/?


I find subreddits usually fine. YouTube usually has nice videos. Where are these "expert" communities you refer to?


This was the peak of American comedy, prove me wrong

Shin Kamen Rider is just around the corner so let's make a thread about Tokusatsu
Thoughts, recommendations, etc.
I personally enjoy these tokusatsus the most:

I'm currently watching Kodai Shōjo Doguchan, it's REALLY good.

Hello comrades. ITT we talk about what we are doing to improve ourselves. I'll go first:

I am trying to quit smoking. This is probably my sixth attempt but I am going to try and take it more seriously this time.

I have been cutting down for the past few months and had gotten down to 3 cigarettes a day but when I tried to quit earlier this week I ended up buying a pack at the end of the first day and smoking the whole thing that night out of anxiety about quitting.

I am a drug addict in recovery and this leaves coffee and kratom as the two substances I can use. The kratom seems to help with cigarette cravings or at least incentivizes smoking because I feel sick when I smoke on it. I might try NRT too. I am going to try and get back into running too since that helped me get off heroin the first time.

sounds like you came here hoping to be disappointed, but got disappointed by something other than you were hoping for?
Shitty attempts at self help, eh? Well it's like anything, you have to start somewhere
muh idpol can get tedious, tbf
and of course, idpol is often criticised in bad faith, not wanting oppressed groups to have their own place in the sun

I'm talking about the supermarket, panniers, touring, camping, diy type of fools. Maybe even the recumbent type (full respect btw).

Not the carbon type.

Just get an RV at that point


I think what he meant was that you can't drive that thing outside of paved roads (which are also destructive to the enviroment themselves)

>I often wish I could commute to school/work, or go to the supermarket on my bike, but this is a very unsafe place so it'd easily get stolen. Plus I don't have a helmet.

Get a dirt bike with good suspension. Also my bikes got stolen so I know those cable locks dont work, they just cut them.

Go to a motorcycle store and get a thick chain lock and a thick U lock and if you want hide a gps in the seat or something. They can't cut those off easily
