This plugin from Hear2Read reads 8 different Indic language text by speaking using Text to Speech Engine accessed over Internet.
H2R Speak is a small plug-in from Hear2Read.Org that reads by speaking using Text To Speech (TTS) software. TTS is an assistive technology that reads digital text aloud.
This plug-in requires Internet connection to access Hear2Read TTS Engine.
H2R Speak currently supports the following Indic languages:
- Gujarati (Female voice)
- Hindi (Male voice)
- Kannada (Male voice)
- Marathi (Male voice)
- Punjabi (Female voice)
- Sanskrit (Male voice)
- Tamil (Male voice)
- Telugu (Female voice)
Though the primary goal of Hear2Read project is to help people with Visual Impairment (including Dyslexia) this plug-in can be used by anyone to read web pages with Indic text in one of the languages listed above.
The TTS server used for converting Text to Speech has limited capacity. Therefore, depending on the demand the response may be slow at times. We plan to monitor usage and take necessary corrective actions.
