Tortoise is one of the best text-to-speech systems ever built, but it currently requires the user to deploy their own service on a GPU which can be time-consuming, difficult & expensive. The alternative is to use paid services which offer a monthly pricing tier and are closed-off. This repository aims to provide a usage-based, pay-as-you-go API based on open-source code instead.

We have made some improvements to Tortoise to make the inference ~30% faster, and welcome contributions on our repo to improve it further!

We also provide a Python API wrapper that can used for easy integration into your Python code.
