Subhashish Panigrahi (psubhashish) of Odia Wikimedia has created Lekatha, an open source derivative of AR Tech Tuts’ Python Text-to-speech engine for the Odia language.

Lekatha is able to operate using the same principles as the original TTS — reading pronunciations from a file — by converting Odia characters to ASCII.

Check out Lekatha on GitHub and Wikimedia Commons.

Check out the original project here on AR Compware.
