Text-to-Speech (TTS) with Transformer trained on LJSpeech

This repository provides all the necessary tools for Text-to-Speech (TTS) with SpeechBrain using a Transformer pretrained on LJSpeech.

The pre-trained model takes in input a short text and produces a spectrogram in output. One can get the final waveform by applying a vocoder (e.g., HiFIGAN) on top of the generated spectrogram.

Perform Text-to-Speech (TTS) - Running Inference

To run model inference pull the interface directory as shown in the cell below

Note: Run on T4-GPU for faster inference

!pip install --upgrade --no-cache-dir gdown
!gdown 1oy8Y5zwkLel7diA63GNCD-6cfoBV4tq7
!unzip inference.zip
!pip install speechbrain
%cd inference
import torchaudio
from TTSModel import TTSModel
from IPython.display import Audio
from speechbrain.inference.vocoders import HIFIGAN

texts = ["This is a sample text for synthesis."]

model_source_path = "/content/inference"
# Intialize TTS (Transformer) and Vocoder (HiFIGAN)
my_tts_model = TTSModel.from_hparams(source=model_source_path)
hifi_gan = HIFIGAN.from_hparams(source="speechbrain/tts-hifigan-ljspeech", savedir="tmpdir_vocoder")

# Running the TTS
mel_output = my_tts_model.encode_text(texts)

# Running Vocoder (spectrogram-to-waveform)
waveforms = hifi_gan.decode_batch(mel_output)

# Save the waverform
torchaudio.save('example_TTS.wav',waveforms.squeeze(1), 22050)
print("Saved the audio file!")

If you want to generate multiple sentences in one-shot, pass the sentences as items in a list.

Inference on GPU

To perform inference on the GPU, add run_opts={"device":"cuda"} when calling the from_hparams method.

Note: For Training the model please visit this TTS_Training_Inference notebook
