Working on and off using weekends and other spare time, I finally managed to import my voice into MaryTTSusing my MacbookPro without a VM! It’s still not working as I expected but the overall process completes from beginning to end. I feel like I’m back where I left off several months prior. Before I was working in a Linux environment and other audio issues were plaguing me as I could not hear the imported audio files in one of the import steps. This time around it looks like all of the tools work without nasty side effects. If I can only get my audio generation process further refined I might be onto something.
