Text to speech project 2011

2013 年 5 月 8 日

As a blessing in disguise in the midist of mishaps caused by server site changes at the end of March, we have experimented two text to speech plugins at the following site:
1) Read speaker
2) Odiogo
Chao, MY, May 12, 2011

My assessment is that Reader Speaker does NOT produce sound on the same page!, therefore not better than Odiogo!

Lang-8: 「ランゲート」 

A New way to Practice Japanese or English Writing

相互添削型SNS Lang-8

  「iknow!(現は、英語学習SNSサイトとして有名になりましたが、こちらのLang-8 はまたちょっと違ったSNSで、対象言語は英語だけじゃありません。自分の勉強中の言語で日記を書くと、その言語を母国語としているユーザーが日記を添削してくれて、自分も日本語を勉強している外国の方の日記を添削してあげる・・・というSNSです。」 quoted from 関心空間 (SNSとは?)

This is a demo of how to post a thread at this blog.
1) Prefix your four digit IDs with the title,
2) Copy and paste the text on your MS-WORD,
3) Indent your paragraph, and run spell-check if not done yet.
4) Preview and if OK, SAVE, otherwise re-edit.
5) If OK, publicize.
6) Re-edit further, if you like.
I found a cool web site named “Feed2Podcast” which translates RSS feed into Podcast. That means we can make our blog speak by themselves! Unfortunately, this cool web tool only support English, so we, Japanese, cannot enjoy this interesting tool as long as we describe the entry in Japanese. However, I think that we can “hack” this web tool by making English sentences to pronounce Japanese words such as “Full I care cowards to become miss Note”, which sounds like one of the most famous Japanese poem called as “haiku.”

If you need a local text2speech tool on your own PC, try the following search to find a few free software or sites:

Mastery of Service

Our College Motto, Mastery for Service*
dr_bates.jpgDr. C.J.L. BATES
(Revised by KGU ESS)

      Human nature has two sides, the one personal and individual, the other public and social. The personal and individual side, each man must live alone, the public and social side, he must share with other man. Then there is an ideal of life corresponding to each side, self-culture and self-sacrifice, respectively. And though they sound mutually exclusive, these ideals are not merely not contradictory, indeed, they are complementary. For neither is complete of itself, nor independent of the other. Self-culture pursued for its own sake is selfishness, and self-sacrifice as the only rule of life is weakness. But self-culture is justified only as its fruit is seen in self-sacrifice, and only on the basis of self-culture can self-sacrifice be truly effective.
