AwesomeTTS for Anki

Easily add text-to-speech to your Anki cards

MP3 Generation Configuration

AwesomeTTS configuration dialog with the MP3s tab selected
“MP3s” configuration tab

The “MP3s” tab allows the user to manage how to name generated audio files that are stored with the collection, how the LAME transcoder is invoked and how to rate limit online services.

Filenames of MP3s Stored in Your Collection

By default, AwesomeTTS will generate a unique filename for every word and service/option combination that you use with the add-on. These unique filenames are repeatable, portable, and safe to use across all software and file systems, but they are not human-readable.

If you would like to try using human-readable filenames instead, you may change the dropdown here to “human-readable”.

LAME Transcoder

AwesomeTTS uses LAME to transcode from raw audio formats to MP3s, which are stored on the file system for both playback and recording.

If you are a power user, you can specify exactly which flags will be passed to LAME here. See the LAME command line usage guide for what flags are available.

Note that changing this option does not retroactively affect old MP3s that are already generated, including those in the cache and those that may already be stored in your collection. Depending on the nature of your change to the flags, you may want to regenerate collection MP3s or you may want to clear your cache for the flags to take full effect.
