Review: Text To Speech successfully creates an audible version of your writings

Convert your written word into spoken vocabulary with Text To Speech.

Text To Speech allows the user to type a message and convert it into an audible file. This file can then be saved, shared, or even used as a ringtone if the user desires. The demand for such a program might be a bit limited but this one delivers what it promises. It features an incredibly intuitive user interface, stable functionality, and quick performance.

Installation of Text To Speech completes in no time. Once installed, a clean blue home screen opens to reveal text boxes. The top box allows the user to type in a phrase they wish to change into speech. The next box lets you choose voice pitch with a sliding indicator. Speed of the phrase is then set using a similar sliding scale. At this point the user can listen to their phrase or save it to the SD card. The process is easy and quick and this app supports six different languages. This file can then be used as an alarm, an indicator, or a ringtone. The app seems to be very stable and no freezing or crashing occurred during testing. It also renders speech quickly and clearly.

Text To Speech offers an interesting way to customize your device, and is fun to play with. It's suitable for any level user, from the novice to the pro.
