Cloud-Based Speech Generation

ReadSpeaker speechCloud API is an online text-to-speech API for making desktop/web/mobile applications and Internet-connected devices talk.

Easy to integrate, straightforward, and high-capacity, ReadSpeaker speechCloud API gives you access to high-quality voices in many different languages to read the text in your apps and devices. With the increasing amount of Internet-connected devices, the need for audio interactivity is also on the rise.

To meet that demand, ReadSpeaker speechCloud API enables you to have your application/software send text and receive text-to-speech generated audio files to be played back on Internet-connected apps and devices.

ReadSpeaker speechCloud API can also easily be used in the very popular open source communication application platform Asterisk to add text-to-speech capabilities to PBX/IVR systems.
