Speech synthesizer SAM app ported to Amiga from C64

In this Distrita TV Amitopia Amiga Magazine clip above I demonstrate the Amiga port of Sebastian Macke’s great C-adaption of the speech software SAM (Software Automatic Mouth) for the Commodore 64.

This is an interesting app for AmigaOS that creates a nice sounding voice directly from text like the SAY app that came out with AmigaOS 1.x releases. That sound can be played via audio.device (default) or via ahi.device (-ahi unit).

The sound can also be saved to a wave-file. Input is possible in either English text mode for automatic translation or in phoneme mode (-phonetic).

Nice app to use for recording Speech

There is no costs in getting this app. It is totally free on Aminet. But once you have downloaded. Make sure you have created a drawer where you can copy it to as the archive doesn’t consist of a drawer itself.

When you have unpacked. Open any CLI/Shell window. Head to the area where SAM is installed and start to experiment.

In my test video I found out the basic options. Program works fine but if I type too long text it stops? You can notice that on my last attempt. I haven’t tried out the -phonetic option. But this app can be used for a future made Amitopia TV ident.
