Updating or adding a new Flite TTS?

Hi !

I’m updating Flite, a tts program on https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.shallowmallow.speech.tts.flite&hl=en .

I’m hoping to put it on f-droid.

There’s already on version on f-droid https://f-droid.org/en/packages/edu.cmu.cs.speech.tts.flite/
which hasn’t been updated for a few years.

So I have a few questions

Yes, new different appid and name.

Iframe in what? The metadata can have a Donation button in F-Droid client, so users can go to that site yes.

Great. Will the updated version of Flite support German language?

Seems yes, it’s on Google Store description.
But there is no Spanish, Portuguese!

Yes there is some German.
For Spanish, there could be some really soon, for Portuguese , if you’re interested in Brazilian Portuguese , there is rhvoice https://github.com/Olga-Yakovleva/RHVoice doing it

Great news! We’ve been sorely needing an open source TTS. No up-to-date ones exist, it’s one of the biggest floss problems.

Do you think we could get an ETA on this?

Been waiting a long time for a new tts engine. Good luck.


I have put the wrapper ( still have to put the modified Flite version)

once I clean the flite engine itself and put it on gitlab. What else do I need to do to have it on f-droid ?
