What apps/features give you text-to-speech? - Android Tablets - Android Forum - A Community For Android Users and Enthusiasts


Thursday 30th of August 2012 / androidforum.com
Hi. I had admired the Kindle Fire's text-to-speech ability, and was told pretty much any Android tablet could probably do it because it was a function of Android more than the Kindle.Which app or feature gives you text-to-speech(not speech to text)? Is there a minimum version of Android that you have to have, like Honeycomb or something?

Tryin to setup Text to speech for texts...Found an app that works


Tuesday 15th of November 2011 / forums.androidcentral.com
Im trying to get the text to speech thingy working for text messages, but cant seem to get it right. I have the following settings in my text to speech settings: Driving mode is checkedIn driving mode settings I have "Message" checkedmy default engine is set to Samsung TTS under "default settings" in the TTS settings menu, the "Install voice data" is greyed out and I cant select it. Under "engines", both Samsung and Pico show languages installed, so Im a bit confused. Do I need to install voice data for this thing to work? I thought Samsung TTS and Pico had this coovered...?? With the above settings, I activate driving mode in Voice Talk, and it says it will read notifications out loud, but when I get a text, it doesnt say anything. What am I doing wrong here?? Thanks

Google Translate text-to-speech not working


Sunday 21st of November 2010 / android.stackexchange.com
In Google Translate application, when I try to install text-to-speach, It gives me a box saying: Text-to-speach requires: SVOX voice data: {disabled button}Installed{/disabled button} Text-to-speach extended: {button}Click to install{/button}On clicking, it goes to the market, where the search fails: There are no matches in the android market for the search:pname:com.google.ttsI use x10 mini, which had 1.6 earlier, so I thought like many other apps, this one requires higher versions. But now it's upgraded to 2.1 and still the same issue.Has anyone else had this issue? Is this a bug in Translate? Is there a work-around?

Text to speech not turning off after upgrade to 2.2


Monday 09th of May 2011 / forums.androidcentral.com
I had text to speech turned on for caller id when my samsung facinate was at 2.1. Then I upgraded to 2.2. I then decided to change to a normal ringtone instead of voice. My phone indicated that driving mode was not on. I tried turning it on and then off no luck. I think having this set and then changing to 2.2 has got this setting stuck on my phone. I am trying to avoid a reset. Please let me know if you have any idea.

Galaxy S3 with 4.1 - Google Now/search text to speech not working


Wednesday 16th of January 2013 / androidforums.com
Just ran the updated to the latest version of Android. I was quite looking forward to playing around with the new Google search voice functionality. I have no problem getting it to recognize my voice and perform commands however the app doesn't talk to me. It always displays the information on my screen. Also, does anyone know of a way to default Google Now to open instead of S-voice when pressing the talk button on a BT headset?Thanks!
