Raspberry Pi Text-to-Speech w/ Windows 10 SpeechSynthesizer
We absolutely love when developers harness the real-time capabilities of the PubNub API and extend it to the Internet of Things. With the affordability, capabilities, and flexibility of new embedded boards, the sky’s the limit for IoT hobbyists and developers for any skill level. So when a great project comes along, we want our readers to know about it.
Today’s featured project is from Krishnaraj Varma, who built a text-to-speech application using Raspberry Pi and Windows 10 audio output (part of the Windows 10 IoT release earlier this year). The application enables a user to type in text, sends the command to a Raspberry Pi 2 Model B, then uses SpeechSynthesizer to speak the text.
You can see Varma’s full code repository here, including a schematic and all the code you need to build it yourself.
