Hello everyone……..

In this simple example I will show you how to use Text To Speech in ANDROID. This is one of the unique features in ANDROID.
Unlike iPhone , ANDROID has a built in TTS Library which supports many languages. But iPhone doesn’t have this feature. They have to depend on third-party software for implementing this.

Now go on create a fresh project and copy this following code to it.

package com.TTS;
import java.util.Locale;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.speech.tts.TextToSpeech;

public class TTS extends Activity implements TextToSpeech.OnInitListener {

	  TextToSpeech tts;
	  public void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
	    tts = new TextToSpeech(this,this);

	  public void onInit(int status) {
	    Locale loc = new Locale("eng", "","");
	    if(tts.isLanguageAvailable(loc) >= TextToSpeech.LANG_AVAILABLE){
	    tts.speak("Text to speech in ANDROID from coderzheaven, Hope you like it.", TextToSpeech.QUEUE_FLUSH, null);

	  protected void onDestroy() {

After running this application you will hear the sound that is given as text in this line.

tts.speak(“Text to speech in ANDROID from coderzheaven, Hope you like it.”, TextToSpeech.QUEUE_FLUSH, null);
