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. change.org/p/microsoft-open-so (No, I didn't start the petition, but I'm in agreement with it.)

Delta Chat impressions 

Wow! @delta is amazing on IOS. No more wondering if so and so has a chat app. They can just email and I send an IM message. This is perfect! Plus, the IOS app works beautifully with VoiceOver get.delta.chat/ #Accessibility

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

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. twitter.com/bodil/status/13802

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!

codeberg.org/izzy/Adebar/

Said scripts are "root_*" at codeberg.org/izzy/Adebar/src/b

Thanks in advance to all volunteers :awesome:

It's a completely Free and Open Source project, so you can host your own instance. The directions are on the project's README.
