Audio recording of the Psalms

JohnRigdon
I have been working on audio recordings of the Psalms.

Psalm 1-25 are now on line.

Re: Audio recording of the Psalms

I have been working on recording the Open English Bible.  The book of Psalms is complete as well as John, James, and 1st John.  The book of Luke will be completed this coming week, as will Esther.

As I've done the recording, I've changed a few words which are archaic and changed some sentences to make them flow better when read.  I have highlighted the changes in my working document.  There are also many other changes to make words phonetic, add and delete punctuation and such which should not be carried forward into the master.  These are not noted in my working document, but will make it easier if we record the document using another voice such as the British voice.  The finished recordings are available at  http://www.logoslight.org/pmwiki.php?n=OEB.OpenEnglishBible

I need to know where I should forward my working documents for consideration of word changes in the master copy.

Hi John
You can forward any suggestions to this mailing list or to me directly if you prefer.

Out of interest, what software are you using for the voice synthesis?

Re: Audio recording of the Psalms

This is a voice synthesis system that is under development by Google and
Microsoft, but not released to the general public yet.  I have hacked at
it a bit to improve the flow, but there are still some rough edges.  The
voices are on line at http://wordsrus.info/speak/speak1.php.  The "voice"
tab is disabled, rather there is a "speak2.php", speak3.php etc. for each
voice that is being hacked as I get native speakers to comment on each.
At some point I will probably incorporate them all into one routine.

My working documents are attached.  You should only consider the
highlighted words for the master documents.  Ignore my alternative
spellings for pronunciation and punctuation which were changed to improve
the flow.
