mwsynth converts a text file to speech using the pronounciation feature of an online dictionary
mwsynth performs speech synthesis on the text in a given input file, using the word pronounciation feature of an online dictionary. It outputs a series of numbered .wav files, which when played in ascending order, sound roughly like the text of the input file being spoken aloud. A CR separated playlist is also generated, which can be used with XMMS or WinAMP to easily play the files in the correct order.
This tool is not intended for serious use, and really just constitutes a lighthearted attempt to demonstrate a mostly functional speech synthesis system in ~80 lines or so of Python. Comments and questions are welcome, although I don't intend to develop the application further.
