Blockquote Project Gutenberg and Microsoft have worked together to create thousands of free and open audiobooks using new neural text-to-speech technology and Project Gutenberg’s large open-access collection of e-books. This project aims to make literature more accessible to (audio)book-lovers everywhere and democratize access to high quality audiobooks. Whether you are learning to read, looking for inclusive reading technology, or about to head out on a long drive, we hope you enjoy this audiobook collection.
I expect free models to become available soon (maybe even via collab notebooks). We could use these to synthetize talks from texts in massive amounts.
