We are glad to announce the release of Swaram - the first Text to
Speech System in Malayalam, based on the festival engine. You can
download the package from

This is an alpha release primarily intended for testing purposes and
bug-fixing. This has been tested with version 1.96 of the festival
speech engine, and is expected to work on GNU/Linux distributions
which uses GNOME as the desktop interface.

This programme was developed as part of the INSIGHT project (
insight.kerala.gov.in), a joint initiative of Kerala State IT Mission
( itmission.kerala.gov.in ) and SPACE ( space-kerala.org ).

The software was developed almost entirely by the efforts of Mr. Rijoy
V, who has been working on this for the past 10 months. Kindly send in
your queries and suggestions to rijoy dot v at gmail.com.
