Text to Speech using Python


Libraries required for Converting Text to Speech is gTTS – Google Text to Speech
Open Your Anaconda CMD or Terminal Depending Upon Which Environment you are working with. In this article I am following Jupyter Notebook so I will be using Anaconda Prompt to Install required library.

Run Command

pip install gTTS


Once Required Library is Installed. Open Jupyter Notebook. Create New Python 3 File. And Write this Code:

from gtts import gTTS
mytext = "Welcome to All Programmers"
language ='en'
myaud = gTTS(text = mytext, lang = language, slow = True)

gTTS accepts parameters, Text that we want to convert to speech. lang parameter that needs to be a 2 character language code specifying the language of text. and Slow Parameter that will be either true or false. Slow Parameter Specifies the Speed of Audio Speech. save function accepts 1 parameter and that is path and name of the audio file to save it in the directory. Here I have given only name So it will save the audio in the working directory where my code file is saved. If I want to save it in any other directory e.g D:/MyFiles/ then I will give path as r’D:/MyFiles/myaudio.mp3′ .

Execute the program and it will save the Audio of given text in specified Directory.
