SAM Software Automatic Mouth
What is SAM?
Sam is a very small Text-To-Speech (TTS) program written in C, that runs on most popular platforms.
It is an adaption to C of the speech software SAM (Software Automatic Mouth) for the
Commodore C64 published in the year 1982 by Don't Ask Software (now SoftVoice, Inc.).
It includes a Text-To-Phoneme converter called reciter and a Phoneme-To-Speech routine
for the final output. It is so small that it will work also on embedded computers. On my
computer it takes less than 39KB (much smaller on embedded devices as the executable-overhead
is not necessary) of disk space and is a fully stand alone program.
Currently compatible with Firefox, Chrome, Safari + iOS. The conversion was done using Emscripten
Github Repository with the C source code
