"The goal of the MBROLA project is to obtain a set a high quality speech
synthesizers for as many languages as possible, free for use in
non-commercial applications. The ultimate goal is to boost up academic
research on speech synthesis, and particularly on prosody generation, known
as one of the biggest challenges in Text-to-Speech Synthesis for the years
to come. Brazilian Portuguese, Breton, British English, Dutch, French,
German, Romanian, Spanish, and Swedish already available as full software
multilingual speech synthesizers (i.e., the DSP part of a TTS system). Many
other languages are in preparation."
