--end of speako8_lib_min

Speako8's voice must be configured prior to first use:

function _init()
spk8_pitch,spk8_rate,spk8_volume,spk8_quality,spk8_intonation,spk8_if0,spk8_shift,spk8_bandwidth,spk8_whisper=
140,1,1,.5,10,10,1,1,1
end

Warning: This application may generate loud and harsh sounds. Protect your hearing! Do not test with headphones on and turn down the volume.

Variable Range Explanation
spk8_pitch 60-230 Fundamental pitch of voice (F0) in hertz
spk8_rate .1-2 Standard rate of speech divisor— below 1 is slower; above 1 is faster.
spk8_volume .1-2 Standard volume factor— below 1 is quieter; above 1 is louder.
spk8_quality .1-2 Glottis open period— below .5 is creakier voice; .5 is modal voice; 1 is breathy voice; above 1 is weaker voice.
spk8_intonation 0-20 Degree of pitch prosody in hertz— set to zero for robotic monotone.
spk8_if0 0-20 Degree to which the inherent pitch (F0) of vowels varies (in hertz)— set to zero for robotic monotone.
spk8_shift .8-1.2 Factor by which to shift formant frequencies (F1, F2, F3)— above raises formant frequencies; below one lowers
spk8_bandwidth .5-5 Factor by which to alter bandwidth of formant frequencies (F1, F2, F3)— below 1 narrows the bandwidth of the formants; above 1 widens. When formants are shifted upward, it is recommended to widen bandwidths as well.
spk8_whisper 1 or 2 Speaking mode— Normal voice is 1; whispering is 2.

To enable speech synthesis, you must call speako8 in the _update function. Then call say with a speech string:

function _update() 

  speako8()  -- must appear once unconditionally in _update.

  if btnp(5) then --❎ button
    -- use speaking if you want to check if anything is currently being said.
    -- if not speaking() then
    say("_/hh/-1.57/eh/-1.07/l/-1.33/3/ow/-1.03/-3/w/1.27/-3/er/1.65/-3/l/-1.64/-3/_/d")
    -- end
  elseif btnp(4) then -- πŸ…ΎοΈ button
    mute()  --flushes the sound queue and immediately stops whatever is currently being said.
  end
end

Speech strings represent text phonetically and include prosody markup. The easiest way to create and test them is with the Declare web app. You can also try out different voice options with it.

If you are interested in learning more about speech synthesis, try googling these key words: Klatt synthesizer, formant, acoustic phonetics. It's a fascinating topic. An unminimized version of the library is included in the demo cart.

Special thanks to the gang on the Discord server for lending me their ears and keeping me motivated, especially @packbat, who did it for science. Thanks also to @IMLXH for finding the Klatt prosody rules.

Ah, you cannot enter in just raw english text and have it speak, @bikibird. Nonetheless - a miracle to see - pardon - HEAR - in Pico-8 !

That scary whisper would be perfect for horror games.
Gold star to the elocution expert !

Damn! And a nice little democart. It`ll be fun to think about ways to use this. Maybe a song generator with vocals? A Spaceship-Announcement-System? Speaking NPCs in an RPG? Great work!

You had me at "Speako8", haha

Amazing work, and exciting that as it's small enough to be used as a component. Now I'm trying to find an excuse to make something that needs speech synth.

@dw817, I think it's possible to write phonetic and prosody rules to convert English text to speech strings and fit them into a cart, but I doubt very much that there would be many tokens left over for anything else.

@zep, yes, really looking forward to see what folks do with this. Glad you liked the name.

To everyone, thank you for your appreciations. They made my day.

Imagine using this in a video game. Maybe the creepy whispers would be perfect for a scary atmosphere...

kinda reminds me of Stephen hawking's tts voice (rip)

P#116879 2022-09-04 16:03

@idk_how_to_code, that's because it kinda is! Hawking spoke via a Klatt synthesizer and Speako8 is loosely based on that synthesizer. Much of the formant data and prosody rules I used came from Klatt's writings and are based on his own speech samples. So, yeah Speako8 sounds like Hawking sounds like Klatt.

It sounded like Currah μSpeech for the ZX Spectrum lol

P#116904 2022-09-05 00:45

...but much worse than VOX for the ZX Spectrum. Anyway, the whisper mode is the only one i can understand. keep it up, don't remove it.

this is very cool, but what if you could feed it raw english text and let it say stuff?

P#118001 2022-09-26 21:19

@augusto99999, it could be done. You'd have to write rules for phoneticizing. They wouldn't be as accurate as the pronouncing dictionary that Declare uses, but they might be okay enough. You'd also have to convert the prosody rules from declare.js. I'm afraid, though, that once those tasks were done, there wouldn't be many tokens left for an actual game.

I've added this to my exploring game and finding the CPU/mem usage spikes crazy high when the talking happens, slowing everything else in the game down.

I guess it doesn't surprise me given the magic it's doing, but is there anything I can/should do to try and minimize the hit?

I'm just using the say() with a trigger like documented. It's an incredibly tight and well-thought out component - super thanks for that - but that puts the magic way above my head to try and tweak it :)

P#119622 2022-10-26 22:08

@morningtoast, As you've noticed, it tends to drop frames when the buffer is loading. You can improve things quite a bit, but not totally eliminate the issue by searching for while stat(108)<1920 and changing it to while stat(108)<256 in the Speako8 lib.

can he sing?

P#121056 2022-11-20 08:53

@Vapayt, in theory, yes, but you'd have to change the pitch after each syllable and check that Speako is done saying the last syllable before sending the next.
