  • The Java™ platform has a stigma of being a poor performer and has often been shunned as an environment for developing speech engines. We decided to better understand this stigma by writing a speech synthesis engine entirely in the Java programming language. Remarkably, we were able to get better performance from our engine than one using similar algorithms written in C. Our team, composed of three engineers with significant backgrounds in the C and Java programming languages, also found it… CONTINUE READING
