Phonetic scripts for all voices!

Post by ayumu » Wed Jun 06, 2018 10:46 am

Hi guys! :)
Sorry for the repost, maybe I posted in the wrong place (and got no reply). :oops:

So, I'm using phonetic scripts to add effects on voices.
I use a code to tell the synthesizer that what I write next is phonetics, not sentences.

The code is: [[ inpt PHON ]]

But it only works for voices from macintalk 3.
Do you know if there is a new encoding which can apply for all voices?
It is very important for me because I'm developping a software for blind people.
Any help is welcome!

Thank you very much. (and sorry for my English)

Hi ayumu :D
I don't know that your previous post was in the wrong place, but even if it were, it wouldn't stop it from getting answers.

I can't answer your question because I don't know anything about it, however the goal seems a good one. Hopefully someone will chime in with more knowledge than I.

Hi bogs! Anyway, thank you for your reply. :) I know what I'm asking for is very specific, so I'll wait for THE ONE who knows. The solution must exist, right? :wink:
Have a good day!

I think we need more information.
How do you tell your synthesizer this?
Via Sysex? (System Exclusive data)
Or is it a VSTi (Virtual Synthesizer)
Or a vocoder?

I don't know what macintalk is...

Or is it synthesis voices where you talk about?
Please, stop quoting things my brother did not say. Thank you. Hans Zweistein.

Hi ayumu,

last year I created a desktop application for a language lab, which reads out phonetic text.
I am not allowed to talk about the job, as you will understand, but here is the webpage:
http://phonetics.livecodehosting.com/S4 ... index.html
Not sure this will help you, but maybe you can get in touch with him.

that is a text-to-speech program first included with the original Apple Macintosh computer in 1984. So it is a BIT out-of-date. 8)

For Macintalk 3, I use the speech manager from Mac.
For example, executing the code below with Ralph or Fred's voice (on Mac), we obtain the French pronunciation of "paquet".

Code: Select all

on mouseup
Revspeak "[[inpt PHON]]"&"1pAA_k>IXIX_"
end mouseup
One of my associate made a function "text to French phonetics" which transform French texts to phonetic strings. This enable every voice from Macintalk to speak French.
The problem is, apart from Macintalk voices, all the other voices consider the phonetics as text. Even with the line "[[input PHON]]" before.
Maybe another encodage is necessary, and certainly for the phonetic writings too. :?:

Hi Klaus, thank you. I found S4 very interresting. I will see some more of it. :D

Ah yes, ok i was Amiga minded which had it too on board. And of course much more beautiful than the Mac :twisted: also with astonishing 8-bit sound :mrgreen:
