Android Text to Speech (TTS)


via Android Text to Speech (TTS) | Surviving w/ Android.

This post describes how to use text to speech (TTS) in Android. It isn’t so common to find a post explaining how to use it and it is a part of Android not much covered. In my opinion, TTS is very interesting because it can add some nice features to an app. Text to Speech is a feature of Android platform that can be used to “read” the words and make the app talking, or more in detail to synthesize text.

In this post, i want to cover how to implement TTS in Android and how we can control some interesting aspects of speech engine. We want to code an app that has a EditText widget so that we write the words that have to be read and some controls to modify the speech engine.
