Motivation & Vision

A high-quality German artificial voice that can be generated offline should be available to any project free of charge and without any licensing restrictions.

Thorsten Müller and Dominik Kreutz have been working on this vision since October 2019. This is how the project came about.

Thorsten-Voice

No matter what area you come from:

Based on more than 35,000 free audio recordings (CCO license) and machine learning (AI), an artificial voice was trained that is available to everyone.

I wish there was a Youtube channel offering news and technical walkthroughs around open voice technology?
