get it from the git repository:
pure data external to synthesize text to an array with espeak library
based on flite external by Bryan Jurish
* depends on espeak
(C) 2011 by Matthias Kronlachner
just testet under Ubuntu but should also work in OSX
* get/install pd (http://puredata.info)
* get and install espeak
or sudo apt-get install espeak libespeak-dev
* edit Makefile for right path to pd sources
* #…/espeak> make
* have a look at the espeak-help.pd file!
:::THINGS TO DO:::
* access all properties of the library
* output current properties at outlet
I’ve tried to compile the espeak external on a Mac OSX (lion) systeem,
and it gave some errors.
First it couldn’t find espeak/speak_lib.h , which I solved by copying the right file to the patch.
Then as expected a nice .pd-darwin file emerged.
But when running the patch in PD I get the error:
espeak.pd_darwin: mach-o, but wrong architecture
… couldn’t create
I used the same source files version of PD as the .dmg file indicated 0.43-0,
but I did not compiled PD myself (tried but failed several times)
Do you maybe have an idea on how I can succesfully compile and run your patch on Mac OSX
or maybe have a precompiled version of de eSpeak external that runs on Mac OSX 10.7?
Thanks in advance,
