Text to Voice

http://www.workkafe.com/
TTS gives Firefox the power of speech. Select text, click the button on the bottom right of Firefox window and this add-on speaks the selected text for you.

Read Wikipedia article on this addon here and watch YouTube video here. [This video is of an earlier version of addon though]

Here comes a speaking add-on. Literally, it speaks. Did you ever come across a word which you were not sure how to pronounce? Ever wondered an easy way to hear the word? This add-on is surely going to get a place on your best buddies list. You only need to select the word/words to be pronounced and click the button on the bottom right of your browser. That's all. Your new buddy is going to say the word/words for you.

You can even download what you just heard. Yes, an audio file in mp3 format can be downloaded from the same page. Right click on 'download mp3' link, select 'save link as', select location on your computer and it downloads the mp3 audio file there. Cheers!!!

Languages Supported: English Hindi Espanol Italiano Portugues Catala

Note: Except English, other languages have a little robotic voice. This will be taken care of in future versions.

Courtesy: For English we use TTS services from text2speech.org (privacy statement http://www.text2speech.org/privacy.php ) and for other languages we use vozme.com (privacy policy: http://vozme.com/legal.php?lang=en ) TTS services.
