TTS Util is a utility app for synthesising text into audible speech using Android's text-to-speech framework.


Features:



  • Read input text, clipboard text or text files using text-to-speech.

  • Create speech wave files from input text, clipboard text or text files.

  • Share text to read using share menu entries.

  • Read clipboard text using launcher shortcuts (requires Android 8 or higher).

  • Configurable app-specific text-to-speech settings: engine, voice, pitch and speech rate.

  • Supports any text-to-speech engine that uses Android’s TTS framework.

  • Supports Android 5.0 and above.


TTS Engine Requirement:


This app is not itself a TTS engine. A separate text-to-speech engine app is required in order for this app to function. Most devices should come with one preinstalled.
