    The default Text To Speech service in MyRobotLab (MRL) is not the best out there.
    For Windows users, MRL comes with the Mimic Speech service.
    Mimic Speech was created by MycroftAI and sounds very good, but if you run MRL on a Raspberry Pi, then its just not available, unless you download and compile the binary yourself and tell the MRL MimicSpeech service where to find it.
    In this video, I show you how to do just that 🙂

    • Hello
      very good tutorial.
      But how to put MimicSpeech in French?

      • I may well be very wrong, but, if you pass a French language phase to it with a voice more suited to the French language.
        I did try a test copying some text from this site (The post below), but I can not judge the result as I don’t speak or understand the French language at all.
        I did try this line at the terminal window.
        ./mimic -t “boujour je voudrais savoir si le servoboard est pour le rebot complet ou il faut que j en commande 2 merci” -voice slt

        Maybe if you test this line and maybe try a few of the different installed voices,
        The command to get a list of the voices is:
        ./mimic -lv

        Please let me know if this works.
