Apparently the new audacity owners are adding telemetry to it :/ This is....concerning. Especially because that PR discussion has _zero_ opposition to the feature being added

Microsoft now owns, or will soon own, one of the best text-to-speech engines for blind power-users, through its acquisition of Nuance. But the code has been abandoned for years. It seems unlikely that this TTS engine is a valuable asset for Microsoft. So let's petition them to open-source it. https://www.change.org/p/microsoft-open-source-eti-eloquence (No, I didn't start the petition, but I'm in agreement with it.)
Oh, an interesting take :)

Google's Lyra codec is just a bruteforce "NEURAL NETWORK GOES BRRR" solution for speech encoding. "Just stick a neural network and let it handle everything."
Neural networks don't belong in a sound generator. They belong as a predictor to make a filter reproduce speech. In other words, they belong as neural networks hooked up to fake vocal cords.
LPCNet is to me much better, and a way more elegant solution. But Google hate any research that isn't Google, and with their compute capacity, a bruteforce solution is just so easy to do. No research is even needed, programmers can just excuse themselves from work with infinite amounts of "the NN is being trained".
I moved accounts without waiting for the import to finish, silly me, and am now happy at my new home here but would love it if I could find my old followers again! I'm a Blind writer, author/blogger, and, recently, anthology editor. I'm also a bookworm and believe #BlackLivesMatter Nice to be among my own here! I don't have an image yet because I'm on my travel laptop and I have no images on this one. #introduction #introductions
Gitter is now bridged natively to Matrix! As such we will soon retire the previous bridge in favour of the new. Learn more at https://matrix.org/blog/2021/04/15/old-gitter-bridge-end-of-life-2021-04-21-to-be-replaced-with-native-bridge
Element rolls out bridge: Microsoft Teams crosses into Matrix's encrypted comms land https://reg.cx/3Zhz
I've been using matrix for quite some time now. Good clients for multiple platforms. Only issue is the usual: how to get people on their own self hosted node. https://twitter.com/bodil/status/1380245718485590027
Next release of #Adebar is almost ready: master branch is stable and waiting for testers.
The "devel" branch has two scripts for backup/restore of apps incl. their data with "root powers" which are not yet in "master" as they have only been tested (successfully) on a single device. I'd very much appreciate feedback for those to decide whether to include them with the release!
Said scripts are "root_*" at https://codeberg.org/izzy/Adebar/src/branch/devel/tools
Thanks in advance to all volunteers
The day has arrived. I can finally present you all my new project.
Inspired by NewPipe, Nitter, Invidious or Bibliogram, here comes Lingva, an alternative Front-end for Google Translate.
It's a completely Free and Open Source project, so you can host your own instance. The directions are on the project's README.
You can also make any kind of contribution. Feel free to Pull Request.
