关于本地数据使用

默认使用本地数据库,如需关闭,可使用 -w--webonly 选项。

$ python2 translate.py hello -w

关于翻译服务选择

可使用 -s--service 选项指定翻译服务:bing | youdao | iciba ,默认使用必应翻译。以下三种表示方法均有效:

$ python2 translate.py hello -s=youdao
$ python2 translate.py hello -s youdao
$ python2 translate.py hello -syoudao

若该选项非空,则 webonly 会自动开启,即不使用本地数据库。

关于单词发音

单词发音功能默认关闭,如需启用,可使用 -p--pronounce 选项,选择具体的软件发音: espeak | festival 。

另外 TTS 合成语音效果一般,若有真人语音文件,可配合 aplay、mpg321、sox 等命令使用,可修改源码中的 pronounce 部分以更改的发音配置。

$ python2 translate.py hello -p=espeak
$ python2 translate.py hello -p=festival
$ python2 translate.py hello -p=real
