I recently re-built my setup and moved to hosting all my HA related stuff in Docker. This has mostly been great, though I’m still ironing out a few issues. One of these is that my TTS announcements no longer work due to PicoTTS not being available in the Docker image.
As I see it there are a couple of options to fix this:
- Build a custom HASS image based on the official one, but including PicoTTS
- Install another local TTS option (ideally via Docker), such as MaryTTS that would be available over the network
I’m not all that enthused about option 1 due to the need to re-build the image for every new HASS release. Option 2 just adds another thing to maintain.
Has anyone got any other ideas? Has anyone found another way to get PicoTTS working inside the Docker container?
(Note: I’m not at all interested in non-local i.e. cloud based TTS, hence why it’s not included in the list. Please don’t suggest this as an alternative ).
Thanks in advance.
