We recently covered the release of Whisper, a brand new speech-to-text transcription model from Open AI. This incredible model comes with a host of useful capabilities including multilingual speech recognition, transcription, and translation. This extends across the 97 languages included in the training dataset, to varying degrees of success.
We start off by importing all the necessary packages. We are notably going to use yt_dlp to download the Youtube videos, Whisper to translate and transcribe the audio files into text, and MoviePy to make changes to the video files and generate the subtitles.
Tags give you ultimate creative freedom to use multiple voices, languages and other speech modifiers. Use GhostReader Plus to create beautiful audiobooks, lively podcasts or proof-read your screenplay with all characters having their own voice. With automatic language detection you can effortlessly listen to multilingual texts and documents.
For years, this sort of technology was largely proprietary, and for good reason. There is a race to the top to create the best NLP models, and the arms race remains ongoing. Examples of this for speech to text include the popular Google Translate API and AWS Transcribe. Others are built in to popular applications, like Apple's Siri.
Rising up to meet these tools comes the rapidly popularizing Whisper from Open AI, which offers comparable efficacy to production grade models for free to users, with a multitude of pre-trained models to take advantage of. In this tutorial, we will look at Whisper's capabilities and architecture in detail. We then jump into a coding demo showing how to run the powerful speech to text model in a Gradient Notebook, and finally close our tutorial with a guide to setting up the same set up in a simple Flask application with Gradient Deployments.
Finally, we declare the task and parameters for decoding the speech using whisper.DecodingOptions() . This is where we could declare that we would like to use the model for translation or transcription, and additionally input any other number of sampling options. We then input the model, the mel, and the options to the whisper.decode() method, which transcribes (or translates and then transcribes) the speech into strings of text characters. These are then saved in 3 formats as .txt, .VTT, and .SRT files.
Leveraging advanced AI algorithms and deep learning, the realistic online voice generator tool allows you to convert text into natural-sounding speech, in a matter of just a few minutes. Serving as a voice maker, it helps you create life-like synthetic voices that mimic the tonalities and prosodies of human speech and sound. Unlike other computer generated voice, Murf's AI voices don't sound monotonous and robotic. Rather the Murf AI's tts voices are super realistic and flawless.
Murf also simplifies the process of editing recorded voiceovers. Simply feed your recorded speech onto the Murf Studio and it automatically transcribes the content into an editable text format that you can edit and modify.
In addition, Murf enables one to include background music to your video or image and sync them with a precisely timed voice over. Murf has a library of royalty music that you can choose from or import audio files of your own. Furthermore, the text to speech platform lets you adjust the ratio of voice to music.
What makes Murf stand out among other text to speech tools is the fact that as an online voice generator, it lets you create quality outputs in a jiffy. From enterprises to small-medium businesses to individual content creators, everybody can generate realistic-sounding voice overs across different ages, languages, and accents using Murf.
Its easy-to-use interface, sleek design, and high-end features make it a must-have tool for someone that wants to create great voiceovers in just minutes. Looking for a high-quality, cost-effective solution for creating voiceover narrations? Murf natural sounding text to speech is your answer.

The original NeXT computer implementation is complete, and is available from the NeXT branch of the SVN repository linked above.The port to GNU/Linux under GNUStep, also in the SVN repository under the appropriate branch, provides English text-to-speech capability, but parts of the database creation tools are still in the process of being ported.
The first official release has now been made, as of October 14th 2015. Additional material is available for GNUStep, Mac OS X and NeXT (NeXTSTEP 3.0), for anonymous download from the project SVN repository ( ). All provide text-to-speech capability. For GNUStep and OS X the database creation and inspection tools (such as TRAcT) can be used as intended, but work remains to be done to complete the database creation components of Monet that are needed for psychophysical/linguistic experiments, and for setting up new languages. The most recent SVN Repository material has now been migrated to a Git Repository on the savannah site whilst still keeping the older material on ther SVN repository. These repositories also provide the source for project members who continue to work on development. New members are welcome.
In summary, much of the core software has been ported to the Mac under OS/X, and GNU/Linux under GNUStep. All current sources and builds are currently in the Git repository, though older material, including the Gnu/Linux/GNUStep and NeXT implementations are only in the SVN repository. Speech may be produced from input text. The development facilities for managing and creating new language databases, or modifying the existing English database for text-to-speech are incomplete, but mainly require only the file-writing components. The Monet provides the tools needed for psychophysical and linguistic experiments. TRAcT provides direct access to the tube model.
Powered by deep learning and neural networks, Whisper is a natural language processing system that can "understand" speech and transcribe it into text. But it's also its own thing, sitting at a spot right among all similar solutions:
Let's say we have the file LatestNote.mp3 which contains speech in Greek, in folder c:\MyAudioFiles, and want to translate it to English and transcribe it into a text file.
Discord is the go-to app for chatting while playing games, watching movies, or really doing anything else with a group. A big reason why is that Discord includes a long list of accessability options, including text-to-speech. In this guide, we're going to show you how to use text-to-speech on Discord and some of the settings you can tweak.
Discord has text-to-speech enabled by default, so it's easy to get started. Although the feature is enabled out of the box, you'll need to set up when you hear text-to-speech notifications. We'll show you how to do that in the last section. For now, we're going to walk through how to confirm that text-to-speech is on.
You can also set your text-to-speech rate here. We recommend leaving the setting in its default position, but you can speed up or slow down the talking rate how you like. Before closing out, make sure to select Preview to make sure text-to-speech is working however you like.
After you've set up text-to-speech, you can start using it to either send messages or to have messages read to you. Before diving in, note that there's a minor difference between the Discord app and the browser version. The app includes its own unique voice for text-to-speech. If you're using the browser version, the voice will be the standard voice available in your browser instead.
Using the method above, you can target text-to-speech to certain messages that you send or receive. You can also turn on text-to-speech for notifications, which doesn't require the /tts command or any additional steps to hear messages. When someone posts a message in a channel, you'll hear it read to you.
Although it's tough to avoid spam will all text-to-speech notifications turned on, harassment is still against Discord's community guidelines. Make sure to read our guide on how to report someone on Discord if you're having trouble with spammed text-to-speech notifications.
Text-to-speech is a great feature in Discord, but you'll probably need to experiment with notifications to get it working how you want. Thankfully, all of the text-to-speech options are only a couple of clicks away.
Text-to-Speech (TTS, also known as Speech Synthesis) allows users to generate speech signals from an input text. SpeechBrain supports popular models for TTS (e.g., Tacotron2) and Vocoders (e.g, HiFIGAN).
Free users may also use the basic text-to-speech functions unlimitedly with the Free Voices and use the Premium Voices for up to 20 minutes per day. Free and Premium users may sample the Plus Voices for up to 5 minutes per day. 2b1af7f3a8
