In stead of Dr. Zen (Toshiba), I will answer this question
since I'm manning the CSTR online demo having the Nina voice.
Many many HTS voices including the Nina voice will be released
for **free only for research use** from CSTR HTS voice library
very soon. (For non-research use, please contact me.)
We have already finished negotiation and reach agreements

with us for you to download/get the voices.
University of Edinburgh finalizes several required paperwork
just now. So please wait for a few weeks for further announcement
