Bonn Open Synthesis System (BOSS) 3

On December 19th, the Phonetics group at the University of Bonn (Institute
for Communication Sciences, formerly IKP) finally released the Bonn Open
Synthesis System. BOSS is a free unit selection speech synthesis software
licensed under the GPL. It was conceived as a modular, extensible
client/server application suitable for multi-lingual TTS or CTS. BOSS comes
with a number of tools to facilitate the creation of new voices.

A speech corpus for German (free for non-commercial use) can be downloaded
at our website.

Please visit the BOSS homepage at http://www.ikp.uni-bonn.de/boss for
further information.
The BOSS source code and binaries are hosted at the Sourceforge website:

The Institute for Communication Sciences invites everyone to participate in
the development of the system or the creation of new corpora.
