Custom Text-To-Speech

this functionality is temporarily unavailable


The main reason why we enabled customizing TTS is that TTS engines do not pronounce numbers correctly in some languages. Therefore we created our own system where all texts are stored in text files in usable format prepared for reading. Another advantage of this system is that you can customize the TTS files as you like.

The TTS files are available for customization at a shared Google Drive.

Basic procedure

  • download required file from the Google Drive
  • modify its content
  • upload modified file into Locus/data/tts directory - no matter if there is a TTS file in the directory - Locus will prefer your file.
  • choose modified language in Locus Settings > Language&Units > TTS settings

Additional instructions

  • the TTS file is written in JSON format which is very syntax-sensitive. Use some editor with syntax highlight, e.g. Notepad++ or Anyfile Notepad
  • if you want to translate TTS to language that is not on the Google Drive, write to us and we will gladly add it.
  • detailed information can be found in this forum >>
