New app for Mac gives speech to your Arduino

Posted on Wednesday, June 27th, 2012 in Arduino by DP

Here is a voice synthesizer app for Mac giving your Arduino speech capability. You simply send strings over the serial port and the app reads them out.

Speech for Arduino supports all voices on your Mac. You are able to change the pitch, rate, and volume straight from the window. You can also use various speech commands to modify emphasis on words.

    Hate to be the cynic (lies) but this is really just a gui for the “say” terminal command. Just try it. Open terminal, type “say Dangerous Prototypes Rocks!”. It can accept input from the command line, a file, or a tty device like a serial port, and even save to a file (tty devices only save the last line spoken, unless you call the command for each line individually, it’s a buffer weirdness)
