Speech Generator is a stand-alone component of Piga Animator that allows the creation of speech files for amplitudinal mouths powered by the Gambas Performance System. It also functions as a front-end system for various free software text-to-speech engines, most notably eSpeakNG. Development began in April 2017 initially as a feature within Sprite Stage, the only component at the time.
