LPCNet: DSP-Boosted Neural Speech Synthesis
LPCNet is a new project out of Mozilla’s Emerging Technologies group — an efficient neural speech synthesiser with reduced complexity over some of its predecessors. Neural speech synthesis models have already demonstrated impressive speech synthesis quality, but their computational complexity has made them hard to use in real-time, especially on phones. Our solution with LPCNet uses a combination of deep learning and digital signal processing (DSP) techniques.
Multi-user experiences with A-Frame
Salva de la Puente describes the
sharedspacecomponent he's built, which brings the power of WebRTC to A-Frame users. The component provides a collaboration model where participants can join or leave a named space, share audio and state, and send JSON-serializable objects to other peers. Check it out!
WebRTC: Sending DTMF in Firefox
One of the features defined in WebRTC is the ability to send DTMF tones (popularly known in some markets as “touch tones”). While this has basically no purpose in the browser-to-browser case, it is somewhat important when using WebRTC to initiate calls to the legacy telephone network: many companies still use voice menu systems that […]
What’s new in Web Audio
Introduction It’s been a while since we said anything on Hacks about the Web Audio API. However, with Firefox 37/38 hitting our Developer Edition/Nightly browser channels, there are some interesting new features to talk about! This article presents you with some new Web Audio tricks to watch out for, such as the new StereoPannerNode, promise-based […]
Blend4Web: the Open Source Solution for Online 3D
Half year ago Blend4Web was first released publicly. In this article I’ll show what Blend4Web is, how it is evolved and and how it can be used for web development. What Is Blend4Web? In short, Blend4Web is an open source framework for creating 3D web applications. It uses Blender – the popular open source 3D […]
Building a Firefox OS App for my favorite Internet radio station
I recently created a Firefox OS app for my favourite radio station — radio paradise. It was a lot of fun making this app, so I thought it would be good to share some notes about how I built it. The audio tag It started by implementing the main functionality of the app, playing an […]
HTML5 audio and audio sprites – this should be simple
As we’re having a HTML5 Audio developer derby this month, I thought it fun to play with audio again. And I found it sadly enough pretty frustrating. One thing I proposed in a lot of talks is using the idea of CSS sprites and apply them to HTML5 audio. You’ll get the same benefits – […]
