DEMOSTHeNES Speech Composer
DEMOSTHeNES Speech Composer is a general-purpose multilingual and polyglot software text-to-speech (TtS) system that supports the Greek language. DEMOSTHeNES targets to the delivery of intelligible and human-like speech from a wide variety of e-text sources. Its open and component based architecture offers great flexibility, customization and expandability.
DEMOSTHeNES is appropriate for multimedia applications (spoken encyclopaedias, presentations etc), voice technology applications (e.g. telephony services) and aids for the disabled, while it can be embedded or linked to others providing a spoken output. Its novel design is very efficient (approx. 200 times realtime, in version 2), and thus it can offer many channels on server applications. Moreover, the support of several interfaces like MS-SAPI provides easy linking to other applications.
