Michael Sheldon: Pied Beta

For the past couple of months I’ve been working on Pied, an application that makes it easy to use modern, natural sounding, text-to-speech voices on Linux. It does this by integrating the Piper neural text-to-speech engine with speech-dispatcher, so most existing software will work with it out of the box.

The first beta version is now available in the snap store:


(Other package formats will follow)

I’d appreciate any feedback if you’re able to test it, thanks!
