The author has shared 1 other item(s).


     AwesomeTTS makes it easy for language-learners and other students to add speech to their personal Anki card decks. MP3s can be stored with your collection, or speech can be generated on-the-fly. The add-on is free and open-source software, released under the GPL. For source code and more, visit AwesomeTTS on GitHub Text to speech services Awesome TTS provides access to different services for speech generation. Some of these services, like Google Cloud TTS, Microsoft Azure or Forvo are true API services and should be expected to be stable, but require a paid API key. They provide the best quality Text to Speech voices, with Neural Network natural-sounding voices (marked WaveNet or Neural). Other services are not completely official, and either reverse-engineer various APIs or scrape sound files from webpage. These should be expected to break every now and then.

Fantastic add on for language reviews, and for quickly adding sound in bulk to every card in a massive deck.

Naver Chinese isn't working. I would deeply appreciate if this was fixed. Everything else is great. Thanks!

After many hours of fiddling, I somehow got Microsoft Azure to work. Without touching the settings, I closed the AwesomeTTS dialog box, and after opening it up again, it stopped working, throwing 401s at me once again. I restarted Anki, and Azure is working once again... now I'm afraid to close the dialog box. Oh well. Seems to be ok for now.

A voz da Microsoft é melhor que a do Google

Insanely good!
Didn't use the Google TTS one because of the API key but this alternative is insane! I found NAVER translation to be one of the best and most human sounding.

Very powerful and useful add-on.
Thanks for maintaining this from now on

Thanks for the effort.

Personally, I strongly believe we should not advertise AwesomeTTS to new users. Most of them are visitors who are likely to download and hoard 50K of audio files, disrupting online services and stops using Anki in less than a month after starting. These idiots does nothing but disrupt the ecosystem that has worked well for most of us. Only when they have been fully hazed, should we introduce them to the more advanced addon system.

Just kidding, or am I...?
