I posted a technical walkthrough video on how you can use offline TTS in Mycroft with Coqui TTS.
Thorsten, Nice work! Very informational. I will try it at some point.
Thanks for your video! It helped me overcome the last little hurdle I had trying to figure out how to switch to Coqui. The instructions on the page Text-To-Speech - Mycroft AI say to use the same configuration as the Mozilla example, which is not quite accurate.
Now I have Mycroft speaking clearly and consistently in the same voice!
Thanks for all your work!
Do you mind to share your configuration? Just in case someone is looking for the same problem you had.
The value that worked for me is:
I kept looking for errors in the Mycroft log – saw the video and realized the config shown there was without the “/api/tts” – which probably would have been obvious if I’d been looking at the coqui server’s monitor and paying attention…
I’m a complete noob to Mycroft/picroft and anything related to TTS, so the video was very informative.
ENVIRONMENT: Python 3.10.2
Thanks a lot for your video.
On Manjaro-Linux I don’t get any tts via pip.
I got this response, if I do
pip install tts
ERROR: Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement tts (from versions: none)
ERROR: No matching distribution found for tts
Do you have an Idea, what’s wrong here?
… found this… might this the issue… that python 3.10 is to new: https://github.com/coqui-ai/TTS/issues/1017 ?
TTS is tested on Ubuntu 18.04 with python >= 3.6, < 3.9
But i think python 3.10 support is on it’s way.
