Non-Neural Legacy Training Availability

Andrew Read 1 Reputation point

I am attempting to train a new custom voice using one of the non-neural options. While I understand that both statistical parametric and concatenative are being completely discontinued in 2024, are there any regions were either of these options are still available? Given that custom neural is by request only and that it is significantly more expensive, it seems quite odd that the legacy options are unavailable during this transitional period. There appears to be a service hole in that custom neural isn't even widely available, nor price competitive.

Please advise.
