Text to speech

Text-to-speech (TTS) is a technology that allows computer programs to convert written text into spoken words. TTS systems can take any type of text as input, including web pages, documents, emails, or even social media posts, and produce an audio output that can be played back through speakers, headphones, or other audio devices.

To use a text-to-speech system, users typically need to enter or upload the text they want to convert, select a voice or language, and adjust any other settings such as pitch, speed, or volume. The TTS system will then process the text and produce an audio file that can be downloaded, played back, or even embedded into other media such as videos or podcasts.

Text-to-speech technology can be particularly useful for individuals who have difficulty reading or accessing written information, such as those with visual impairments or learning disabilities. TTS systems can also be used for automated voice assistants, audio books, language translation, or any other application that requires spoken output from written input.
