This directory contains the Festival Speech Synthesis System, developed at CSTR, University of Edinburgh. The project was originally started by Alan W Black and Paul Taylor but many others have been involved (see ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS file for full list).

Festival offers a general framework for building speech synthesis systems as well as including examples of various modules. As a whole it offers full text to speech through a number APIs: from shell level, though a Scheme command interpreter, as a C++ library, and an Emacs interface. Festival is multi-lingual (currently English (US and UK) and Spanish are distributed but a host of other voices have been developed by others) though English is the most advanced.

The system is written in C++ and uses the Edinburgh Speech Tools for low level architecture and has a Scheme (SIOD) based command interpreter for control. Documentation is given in the FSF texinfo format which can generate, a printed manual, info files and HTML.

Festival is free. Earlier versions were restricted to non-commercial use but we have now relaxed those conditions. The licence is an X11 style licence thus it can be incorporated in commercial products and free source products without restriction. See COPYING for the actual details.

Festival should run on any standard Unix platform. It has already run on Solaris, SunOS, Linux and FreeBSD. It requires a C++ compiler (GCC 2.7.2, 2.8.1, 2.95.[123], 3.2.3 3.3.2 RedHat "gcc-2.96", gcc 3.3, gcc 4.4.x and gcc-4.5.x, gcc-6.2.0 are our standard compilers) to install. A port to Windows XP/NT/95/98 and 2000 using either Cygnus GNUWIN32, this is still new but many people are successfully using it, it works fine with Windows 10 bash

A detailed description of installation and requirements for the whole system is given in the file INSTALL read that for details.

Keep abreast of Festival News by regularly checking the Festival homepage http://www.cstr.ed.ac.uk/projects/festival/ or the US site http://festvox.org/festival/ or on github https://github.com/festvox/festival/

Pearl Jam's awkwardly timed festival speech ahead of Donald Trump assassination attempt

Pearl Jam spoke out about the "pain" that will be felt during the presidential election in the United States just hours before an assassination attempt on Donald Trump

speech festival application

  • 09:18, 14 Jul 2024

Pearl Jam gave an awkwardly timed speech while performing at NOS Alive festival in Lisbon as they spoke about the US general election ahead of an assassination attempt on Donald Trump .

The grunge rockers said they hoped the US elections would 'get rid of the cancer' before launching into a cover of John Lennon's peace protest song Imagine.

The Seattle-based band's festival appearance was their final show in Europe before heading back across the Atlantic to a political situation that has been heightened after the shooting in Pennsylvania , in which an attempt was made on the life of Republican candidate , former president Trump.

Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder spoke to festival goers during their headline set and his words have proved to be rather awkward after the events that unfolded at the Republican rally soon afterwards. The band were about to play a cover of Imagine by John Lennon and Eddie decided to make a plea to the crowd as he feared for a peaceful election process in the United States.

Eddie said: “We have really had some great, great experiences in your country and we are extremely grateful every time and I say that with all my heart. One of the memories I have is the first time I ever played this song. I was playing at a festival and I was all by myself. I had learned the song the day before because I felt that we needed it."

The singer continued: "The world was having some pain and so it is the last show before we leave [Europe] and go back to our country. It feels like there’s going to be some pain. We have some elections coming up... I hope we can get rid of the cancer and heal ourselves."

Eddie finished by hoping that "good leaders" will emerge to lead the people to a better place. He added: "I wish that for all the countries right now going through issues. We can find good leaders and heal ourselves. It is the people that will find the leaders, they won’t find themselves. If you want to turn your cameras into torches and sing with me, maybe we can feel the energy and power together.”

The singer also spoke about the reasons why the band had to cancel their gig at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on June 29, with just 24 hours notice. The band had posted on social media at the time that members of the band were unwell and unable to perform, and with the scheduling of their tour, there was no other option than to come back at another time.

Speaking about the sickness that made them cancel their London show, Eddie said: "It was so sad, hard and terrifying having to cancel shows. We appreciate your patience and until the next time we love you and we will remember tonight.”

A Wall Street Law Firm Wants to Define Consequences of Israel Protests

Sullivan & Cromwell is requiring job applicants to explain their participation in protests. Critics see the policy as a way to silence speech about the war.

A large crowd gathering on a university campus. Some are holding signs.

By Emily Flitter

For as long as students at colleges across the United States have protested the war in Gaza, they’ve drawn the fury of some of the financial world’s mightiest figures — investors, lawyers and bankers — who have flexed their financial power over universities, toppling school leaders in the process.

It didn’t stop the students. The protests intensified this year until campuses emptied out for the summer.

Now, a prominent Wall Street law firm is taking a more direct approach with protesters. Sullivan & Cromwell, a 145-year-old firm that has counted Goldman Sachs and Amazon among its clients , says that, for job applicants, participation in a protest — on campus or off — could be a disqualifying factor.

The firm is scrutinizing students’ behavior with the help of a background check company, looking at their involvement with pro-Palestinian student groups, scouring social media and reviewing news reports and footage from protests. It is looking for explicit instances of antisemitism as well as statements and slogans it has deemed to be “triggering” to Jews, said Joseph C. Shenker, a leader of Sullivan & Cromwell.

Candidates could face scrutiny even if they weren’t using problematic language but were involved with a protest where others did. The protesters should be responsible for the behavior of those around them, Mr. Shenker said, or else they were embracing a “mob mentality.” Sullivan & Cromwell wouldn’t say if it had already dropped candidates because of the policy.

“People are taking their outrage about what’s going on in Gaza and turning it into racist antisemitism,” Mr. Shenker said.

Kamala Harris knocks Donald Trump at Essence Festival – but doesn't address Joe Biden's disastrous debate

speech festival application

WASHINGTON− As President Joe Biden tries to turn the tide after his disastrous debate performance last month, Vice President Kamala Harris is seeking to keep the focus on Republican opponent Donald Trump .

Harris during remarks on Saturday at the Essence Festival of Culture in New Orleans called the 2024 race for the White House "probably the most significant election of our lifetime," telling the crowd “In 122 days, we each have the power to decide what kind of country we want to live in.”

The vice president during her interview with Essence CEO Caroline Wanga zeroed in on Trump's criminal conviction in his New York hush money case , threats to go after political opponents and the recent Supreme Court decision granting presidents immunity from prosecution for official actions.

"The United States Supreme Court essentially told this individual who has been convicted of 34 felonies that he will be immune from essentially the activity he has told us he is prepared to engage in if he gets back into the White House," Harris said.

Still, the vice president spoke as Democrats nationwide debate whether or not Biden should withdraw from the presidential campaign and allow Harris to carry the party banner against Trump and his Republican allies.

During the Saturday interview, Harris did not discuss Biden's troubles in the wake of his poor debate performance . She mentioned the president's name only once, in connection with the administration plan to eliminate student debt. Biden has repeatedly said he is not exiting this year's presidential race.

As for Trump, Harris also cited the former president's opposition to abortion rights as well as plans for presidents to wield more power should get back into the White House.

Trump “has openly talked about his intention to weaponize the Department of Justice against his political enemies, (he) has talked about being proud of taking from the women of America a most fundamental right to make decisions about your own body.”

The former president has proposed a series of measures that would basically give presidents authority to hire and fire more government officials. Trump's plans would give the president expanded executive control to impose new policies without congressional approval; it would also enable him to push  investigations of political opponents .

He has also said he wants states to control their own abortion restrictions or bans, backing the standard the Supreme Court ushered in after overturning Roe v. Wade in 2022.

Trump has also been critical of Kamala Harris in recent days, attacking her 2020 Democratic primary bid in a July 4 post on Truth Social. He also called her "pathetic" in a video taken at his Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, that he also shared on his social media platform.
