Text-to-Speech (TTS)

What Is Text-to-Speech, or TTS?

From Wikipedia, TTS (Text To Speech) is defined as follows:

  • "Speech synthesis (Text to speech) is the artificial production of human speech. A computer system used for this purpose is called a speech synthesizer, and can be implemented in software or hardware. A text-to-speech (TTS) system converts normal language text into speech; other systems render symbolic linguistic representations like phonetic transcriptions into speech."
