Microsoft introduces Speech Synthesis API in Microsoft Edge



Microsoft Edge

The Web Speech API Specification lets Javascript set speech text along with attributes that control the voice used and modify the language pronunciation, voice, volume, rate and pitch of the voice output.

Microsoft today announced that Microsoft Edge will support the Speech Synthesis APIs defined in the W3C Web Speech API Specification starting with the Windows 10 Anniversary Update allowing websites to convert text to audible speech with customizable voice and language settings. Microsoft also highlighted that their implementation also supports Speech Synthesis Markup Language (SSML) Version 1.0 to provide further control over the speech output.

You can check this out with their new Speech Synthesis Demo. Read about it in detail in the source link below.
