[mary-dev] Use of STRAIGHT with openMary

Hello Arpit Goyal,

(here I am assuming you are familiar with the HTS scripts )

I think you would need to modify a bit the scripts provided, basically 
you would need to use the context features and questions extracted with 
mary, I guess you can extract the acoustic features with the straight 
scripts but use MARY for labels and questions.

if you have a look to your hts/data/Makefile  you will find that label 
and mlf are calculated with the voice import tools:

# label and mlf are done in java with the voiceimport tools: 
# questions file is done in java with the voiceimport tools: 

basically what might work is that the steps:

labels: label mlf list scp  <-- in the straight scripts data/Makefile

are done with mary, the rest done as normal.

But I am not sure if the straight scripts use also a straight vocoder, 
do you know? if that is the case then the problem is that we ported to 
java the MLSA vocoder...  here I am not sure, if the straight scripts 
use another vocoder then you will need to somehow generate the 
parameters with mary and call the vocoder used in straight...
