New Hindi text to speech voice. Are you a native Hindi speaker? What’s your opinion?


There was an ariticle on web that describes a company with a TTS voice for Hindi. And for all you SAPI devs, the desktop version is SAPI compliant. According the article, “‘Vaachak’, developed by Prologix Software Solutions, is the first, high-quality, Indian language TTS system, which converts Hindi and English text into natural and pleasant sounding speech.”


So, is it any good? I can tell you that the acoustic quality, at least from the demos, sounds a bit compressed and there is certainly some artifacts from concatenation. But still, who else out there has a Hindi TTS system?


What do you think? Are you a native speaker of Hindi? I’d love to get your impressions of the sample waves or you can use the demo to enter in Hindi text and have it read out.

    What’s "Vaachak" mean in Hindi? Kunal Mukerjee, a colleague, points out that it means "One who explains and elucidates. Also, commentator."

    Nanda was the head of a community of cow-herders, and he settled in Vrindavana. The stories of Krishna's childhood and youth tell how he became a cow herder,[55] his mischievous pranks as Makhan Chor (butter thief), his foiling of attempts to take his life, and his role as a protector of the people of Vrindavana. Krishna is said to have killed the demons like Putana, sent by Kamsa for Krishna's life. He tamed the serpent Kāliyā, who previously poisoned the waters of Yamuna river, thus leading to the death of the cowherds. In Hindu art, Krishna is often depicted dancing on the multi-hooded Kāliyā. Krishna is believed to have lifted the Govardhana hill and taught Indra, the king of the devas and rain, a lesson to protect native people of Vrindavana from persecution by Indra and prevent the devastation of the pasture land of Govardhan. Indra had too much pride and was angry when Krishna advised the people of Vrindavana to take care of their animals and their environment that provide them with all their necessities, instead of worshipping Indra annually by spending their resources.[56][57] In the view of some, the spiritual movement started by Krishna had something in it which went against the orthodox forms of worship of the Vedic gods such as Indra.[58]

    The stories of his play with the gopis (milkmaids) of Vrindavana, especially Radha (daughter of Vrishbhanu, one of the original residents of Vrindavan) became known as the Rasa lila and were romanticised in the poetry of Jayadeva, author of the Gita Govinda. These became important as part of the development of the Krishna bhakti traditions worshiping Radha Krishna.
