Please note that clicking on the speaker button again will pause the current speech. Before using the app, please make sure to adjust the appropriate language and dialect from the drop-down list.

If this API is not supported in your browser, then this app won't be able to work and the speaker icon turns to red color.

Adjust the appropriate language and desired dialect (is available) and then click on the speaker button to start. You can see the highlighted words in the text area as the app is speaking. Please note that when you type a text in the text area it will be stored in the browser's memory so the next time you open the app, the last used text will be loaded in the text area. Since the app is using the - localStorage - in your browser, and it has limitations for storing depending on your browser and platform. Please do NOT type or paste a very large text because the app may encounter errors or crashes. The best practice is to perform the text to speech paragraph by paragraph.
