Is training with a fantasy language possible?

Please forgive me if this has been discussed before, I could not find any posts on this topic.

I’d like to fake a translator device for translating an alien language to english. For a fun science fiction halloween costume. The only thing I’d like to be able to do is to play different samples based on the fake language word or sentence I speak.

I’d compile a very limited set of alien words and I’d like to train these and hopefully be able to attach the sample player to this.

Do you think this is possible with Rhasspy?
Any pointers appreciated.


Hi @jsilence, welcome :slight_smile:

I do think this would be possible! When you add words to Rhasspy that it doesn’t know, it will guess their pronunciations. You can fine tune those if you want to get something very specific.

Rhasspy shouldn’t have any issue listening for “alien” words (that are still made up of sounds from a specific language like English) and responding with a normal human language :+1:
