Epos is a universal text-to-speech engine. Epos is a language independent rule-driven Text-to-Speech (TTS) system primarily designed to serve as a research tool. Epos is (or tries to be) independent of the language processed, linguistic description method, and computing environment.

The text being processed by Epos is internally stored in a multi-level data structure suitable for the application of transformational rules. Every phonetic unit (or an approximation of one) is represented by a single node in the structure. The nodes are organized into layers corresponding to linguistic levels of description, such that a unit of level n can list its immediate constituents, that is units of level n-1. Every layer has a symbolic name, which is used to refer to it in the rules.

Main features:

  • Czech and Slovak text to speech synthesis configuration
  • LPC and time domain speech synthesizers
  • Prosody modelling driven by rules, prosody models and artificial neural networks
  • All languange dependencies are defined in the configuration files, as opposed to the source code
  • Documentation in English included in the distribution
