Model Overview

GlowTTS is a Glow-based (alternatively flow-based) model that generates mel spectrograms from text.

Model Architecture

For more information about the model architecture, see the GlowTTS paper [1].

Training

This model is trained on LJSpeech sampled at 22050Hz, and has been tested on generating female English voices with an American accent.

Performance

No performance information available at this time.

How to Use this Model

This model can be automatically loaded from NGC.

NOTE: In order to generate audio, you also need a 22050Hz vocoder from NeMo. This example uses the HiFi-GAN model.

# Load GlowTTS
from nemo.collections.tts.models import GlowTTSModel
spec_generator = GlowTTSModel.from_pretrained("tts_en_glowtts")

# Load vocoder
from nemo.collections.tts.models import Vocoder
model = Vocoder.from_pretrained(model_name="tts_hifigan")

# Generate audio
import soundfile as sf
parsed = spec_generator.parse("You can type your sentence here to get nemo to produce speech.")
spectrogram = spec_generator.generate_spectrogram(tokens=parsed)
audio = model.convert_spectrogram_to_audio(spec=spectrogram)

# Save the audio to disk in a file called speech.wav
sf.write("speech.wav", audio.to('cpu').numpy(), 22050)

Input

This model accepts batches of text.

Output

This model generates mel spectrograms.

Limitations

This checkpoint only works well with vocoders that were trained on 22050Hz data. Otherwise, the generated audio may be scratchy or choppy-sounding.

Versions

1.0.0rc1 (current): The original version released with NeMo 1.0.0rc1.
