After discovering Text to Trump, I thought to myself: how cool would it be to make a text-to-speech voice that resembles my own? And then I thought: how hard would it be?

The answer to both questions is "very". Razz

Slightly modified from this Github repository, I created a Python program which would take entries in a modified version of the CMU Pronouncing Dictionary, convert them into individual sounds, and play them back (as well as output them to a .wav file). The results are a bit Stephen-Hawking-ish right now, but I hope to try and improve it soon Wink

Here is an example of "my own voice" reading the Cemetech intro: https://clyp.it/zgs1eqk3

Requires Python, PyAudio, and PyDub. You do not need FFmpeg, but the program can freak out without it.

Project download here. Try it!
