What FOSS TTS should I use?

I can’t find an okish TTS to use. I tried espeak; I hate the way it sounds, though I could customize the sound.

I went looking and found this which implies that the TTS isn’t working on android yet, and this which indicates the STT library does work on android but they have only a very simple and limited demo app so far.

I also found this Voice-Cloning repo which says it has an android app that uses Tacotron2 (one of the models coqui uses, which comes from Google) to do voice cloning… which sounds promising, but I don’t see an apk or build instructions.


Thanks for the answer, sadly it’s exactly what I expected: there is still no way to have a decent working TTS-STT system on android (without Google, of course)
