Free Deutsch (🇩🇪) TTS

A high-quality free German/Deutsch artificial TTS 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 free TTS in deutsch (🇩🇪) since October 2019. This is how the project came about.


No matter what area you come from:

  • Private craft project
  • Open source/community project
  • Education/Research/Science
  • Commercial company

No matter what area you are interested in:

  • Smart language assistants
  • Navigation systems
  • Smart homes
  • Speaking refrigerators
  • Reading out screen pages (accessibility)
  • Interactive robotics

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

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