This is an assortment of all the scripts associated with the Intro to Voice Computing Book. These scripts should give you a jumpstart in learning how to write Python code for voice-related applications.

Getting started: setting up environment (mac)

Note that these are the instructions for Mac computers; you may need some custom setup of FFmpeg and/or SoX if you're using a Windows and/or Linux computer.

First, clone the repository and submodules:

cd ~
git clone --recurse-submodules -j8 https://github.com/jim-schwoebel/voicebook

Now you need to run the setup.py script to make sure you have all the required dependencies for all the chapters of the book. To do this, run:

cd ~
cd voicebook
python3 setup.py

Now you have all the dependencies necessary to follow along with the chapters in the book. You don’t need to worry about any other installations.
