Former Mozilla engineer is a member of 'Coqui' who develops automatic transcription and automatic reading aloud models in open source.

Develop an open source Speech to Text (STT, voice-to-speech conversion) model that automatically transcribes the recorded voice into text, and a Text-to-Speech (TTS, text-to-speech conversion) model that reads out the input text with automatic voice. The company is ' Coqui '.


The founders of Coqui were originally from Mozilla, known for developing Firefox and Thunderbird. The founders thought that voice technology might be monopolized by a large company and would not be provided as open source, so they started an independent company and built an open source voice recognition engine.

The repository for Coqui's STT model 'Coqui STT' is hosted on GitHub. The feature of Coqui SST is that it does not have a voice library prepared in advance, but it can be read aloud by reading the pre-recorded voice.
