AwesomeTTS for Anki 2.1 updated again

0.18MB. Updated 2019-06-12. Only supports Anki 2.1.x.


the lastest AwesomeTTs release has a bug, when you open the menu which include AwesomeTTs, there will be two same icon appear. Since the original author can't continue to update and maintain the plug-in, Damien Elmes suggested I take over the maintenance of the software

Great add-on, but the Command + T, or ctrl + T, is no longer bringing up the proper menu. It really slows down the use. Not sure if anyone else is having this trouble.

The original plugin adds two icons in the card editor and plays the audio twice. This addon plays the audio fine but it adds NO ICON to the card editor so you can easily add different tts to your cards. Other than this it works. I'm using OS:Mint 19 (Ubuntu 18.04) Anki Version2.1.15 (442df9d6) Qt 5.12.1 PyQt 5.11.3. Anyways thank for your effort updating this amazin plugin

It's working!

If it sleeps for 30 seconds you can manually change that in MP3 tab in TTS settings. It allows you to set it minimum to 15 s, but you can change the amount of operations after which cooldown will proceed

Good´╝üWithout duplicate menu and sound icon in Anki 2.1.x

VoiceText (my prefered source) works good with this version (even with the Emotion feature).
And pretty quick between words too (even when overwriting).
And no double icon.
Great job on this AddOn. It kept me using Anki 2.1 :)

very nice

Thanks for picking this up! The plugin is very useful.
Unfortunately, I didn't manage to get this version to work with eSpeak and had to downgrade to anki 2.0 and the old version of the plugin. So it's a "-" for now. Will be happy to put thumbs up once it's got fixed.

WHY doesn't TTS work for *Oxford dictionary* ???

this error occurs when I wanna use it:
"cannot preview the input phrase with these settings.
Request got audio/mpeg Content-Type for web request; wanted binary/octet-stream"

TTS for Oxford dictionary is not working. Could you please fix?

When I select: for a braced clozed marker, replace w/ deleted text (i.e. the answer to the cloze) it simply replaces the cloze with the letter "c' in the recording... No idea how to fix and is very frustrating

I just want it to record the answer to the cloze in the extra box of all my cloze cards

Well it is taking and exceedingly long time to convert my cards to mp3 files. It is taking about thirty seconds "sleeping" in between words. Anyone know if this is something that can be fixed?

Not a rating, but I just want to say that the only reason I still use Anki 2.0 is because that is the only version with a stable AwesomeTTS. Hopefully someone can take on the mantle for Anki 2.1, but until then I will stick with using Anki 2.0.

it can't work

Would be nice if the author could point to github page. Is it still this project?

It is a mess. There are a few versions of this add-on

Would be better for Anki users if developers could contribute to one project and keep it working.

Would it be possible to add Microsoft azure bing voice?

download worked for me

How can I install it? I'm using Anki Version 2.1.13 and trying to install it using the code 2139632824, but it keeps showing "Invalid code, or add-on not available"
on 1560537072
Thank you for updating.
But unfortunately, it couldn't download for Anki 2.1, it shows"Error downloading 2139632824: Invalid code, or add-on not available for your version of Anki."

AwesomeTTS maintainers are dropping like flies,
but I am glad to hear that you are giving this a try.
